Kabul/Xinhua: The Afghan National Police (ANP) arrested four Islamic State (IS) members including one of the group's key leaders in eastern Kunar province, the Ministry of Interior said Wednesday.

The ANP's Special Operations Police Force conducted a counter-terrorism operation Tuesday night, arresting IS members in Jaba Pushad village of Sarkanu district, the ministry said in a statement.

The files of those arrested were referred to the related organs for further investigation, according to the statement.

The statement gave no details about the arrested militants' identities.

The Afghan forces continued mopping-up operations as spring and summer known as fighting season is drawing near in the mountainous country.
