The Islamic State (IS) group claimed that its fighters have captured Osama bin Laden’s infamous Tora Bora mountain hideout in eastern Afghanistan.
. The message was broadcast on the militants’ Radio Khilafat station in the Pashto language late on Wednesday.
It also said IS had taken over several districts and urged villagers who fled the fighting to return to their homes and stay indoors.
Afghan officials earlier said fighting between IS and the Taliban, who controlled Tora Bora, began on Tuesday but couldn’t confirm its capture
