Afghan “Death” militia emerges, vows to fight Islamic State, Taliban

“In late January 2015, dozens of armed men draped in the red, green, and black colors of the Afghan national flag, announced the formation of a new anti-Taliban and anti-Islamic State militia in Afghanistan’s northern province of Balkh. The militia, called ‘Marg’ – the word for death in the Dari language – boasted of having a troop strength of 5,000 armed men, although the number could not be independently corroborated and is most likely exaggerated.”
