ISIL moves into Osama Bin Laden's old home of Tora Bora

The Islamic State militant group (ISIL) has overtaken an area in Afghanistan once used as a headquarters for former Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
ISIL, the foremost killer of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan this year, captured Wednesday the complex of caves known as Tora Bora, located in the country's eastern, restive Nangahar province. The advance reportedly followed a weeklong battle with the Taliban, a rival ultraconservative Sunni Muslim group whose affiliation with Al-Qaeda prompted the U.S.'s post-9/11 invasion of the country in 2001.
