Fighters from a militant Islamic group in Afghanistan, allied to the Taliban, states that they are considering joining forces with Islamic State.

Their commander also said they would still fight the Afghan government, even after Nato forces leave 2014.

Commander Mirwais said that if IS, which he called by its Arabic acronym Daish, proved a true Islamic caliphate, they would link up with it.

The news comes amid an ongoing row over Afghanistan's presidential poll.

The June election remains disputed, with no declared winner, while an audit of votes is taking place.
