Robert Muggah and Rafal Rohozinski, Foreign Policy, Islamic State-Khorasan’s Reach Extends Far Beyond Afghanistan

"Islamic State-Khorasan’s modest territorial footprint in Afghanistan and Pakistan is bolstered by a widening digital presence across Central and South Asia. Originally an administrative division (or wilayat) of the Islamic State, the group’s membership is a mash-up of disaffected Afghan and Pakistani Taliban and members of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan; it later also poached militants from the Kashmir region, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan. Islamic State-Khorasan’s online reach radiates as far as Bangladesh, India, Kazakhstan, and the Chinese province of Xinjiang."
