Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Afghanistan's government says it has captured nearly 700 ISIS members and their families in the east of the country in the past six months. At least 159 children, many of whom are foreign nationals, are also in custody, the Afghan intelligence service reported.
Intelligence officials said most of the suspects, purported to be ISIS members, were from Pakistan, Jordan and Central Asian countries. Afghan officials say 277 foreigners were among those captured.
Afghanistan, a prisoner of war for decades, is one of the countries with the most unexploded mines and bombs in the world. In the past decade, 6,500 children have died and 15 thousand children have been injured in the country.
According to the United Nations, an average of 150 people die each month from mines and bombs on Afghan soil. But the saddest thing about the situation is that 8 out of every 10 people killed or injured are children. That's because some mines look like toys.
