Kabul: The Taliban have arrested 11 suspected members of Islamic State Khorasan Province (IS-KP), a regional affiliate of the Islamic State (IS) group, from Afghanistan's Daikundi province, media reports said on Tuesday.

Taliban members told Khaama Press that the suspects were from Helmand, Ghazni, and Uruzgan provinces but added that further investigations had been started.

Taliban members also seized weapons from them.

The Taliban conducted operations against the fighters of the Afghanistan affiliate of Islamic State group in four districts of southern Afghan province of Kandahar, media reports said on Monday.

The IS-KP terror group has conducted multiple deadly terrorist attacks across the country ever since the Taliban seized the power on Aug 15.
