Kabul : At least 15 members of the Islamic State (IS) militant group were killed in airstrikes in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar, the government said on Monday.

"Acting upon confirmed intelligence reports, the pilotless plane of the coalition forces stormed a hideout of IS militants in Achin district last night," Xinhua quoted a government statement as saying.

The district, bordering Pakistan, has been the scene of heavy clashes between IS militants and security forces, backed by pro-government local militiamen over the past couple of months.

In an unrelated incident, six Taliban militants were killed and seven injured after security forces repelled an attack on three villages in Darqad district of Takhar province, a police spokesperson said.  (IANS)
