At least 11 Chechen nationals were arrested by Afghan security forces in Logar province late on Wednesday, officials said.

According to a statement released by the provincial governor office, the Chechen nationals, including women and children, were arrested with some weapons in Kozai Chatra area of Azra district of Logar.

Two rockets, two AK-47s, a motorbike and a vehicle were also seized from the foreigner militants, the statement added.

Reports suggest that the detained individuals were coming from Hesarak and Khogyani districts of neighboring Nangarhar province where the so-called Islamic State also known as Daesh have a strong presence.

This comes as, some months ago, at least eight Chechen nationals have been killed during Afghan security forces operations in Charkh district of the province.

The insurgent groups have not made a comment about the report yet.
