Three militants of the Islamic State (IS) were killed in clashes with security forces in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar, a military spokesman said Saturday.

A group of IS fighters attacked security checkpoints in Ghani Khil district Friday night, triggering a gun battle during which three armed insurgents were killed and the remaining fled away, said Shir Aqa Faqiri, spokesman for 201 Corps in the eastern region.

According to Faqiri, there were no casualties on civilians or security personnel. Endit
