JALALABAD, Afghanistan, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- The Afghan security forces have arrested four Islamic State (IS) militants disguised in women dress during a search operation in Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, provincial government said Thursday.

The four militants, reportedly wearing women's rational burqas and clothing to escape Afghan forces, were arrested late on Wednesday in Achin district, where Afghan security personnel launched a search operation to clear the area from the IS fighters, the government said in a statement.

The arrestees have been presented to media as they confessed to their affiliation with the IS group of militants.

Anti-government militants are regularly resorting to dressing in women's clothing or hiding out in civilians' homes to desperately attempt to escape security forces in many of Afghanistan war troubled areas. Enditem
