Washington, May 1: New images purporting to show an Islamic State (IS) training camp in Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border, have surfaced on the internet, indicating that the Middle east-based terror group is making inroads into South Asia. According to Fox News, the pictures were obtained by a Pakistani journalist earlier this month and published by the military blog, ‘The Long War Journal.’Pakistani journalist Saleem Mehsud had originally posted the photos on his Twitter page on April 18, but could not divulge details about their origin. Two of the three images show fighters standing in formation with assault rifles in front of armored SUVs draped in the extremist group’s “black standard” flag. A third image shows a pickup truck with a heavy machine gun turret mounted in the bed.
