IS group in 'exploratory phase' in Afghanistan: Pentagon

Afghan police and security inspect the site of a suicide attack targeting the police headquarters in Jalalabad, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province, on June 1, 2015The Islamic State group is in an “initial exploratory phase” in Afghanistan, the Pentagon said in a report to Congress, noting the Taliban retained its resilience in the war-torn country. IS extremists have never formally acknowledged having a presence in Afghanistan, but fears are growing that the group is making inroads there. The Afghan government and the US-led international coalition fighting the Taliban are keeping a wary eye on IS, which has grabbed large areas of Syria and Iraq in a brutal offensive involving beheadings and forced religious conversions.
