The New York Times reports that ISIS has gained control of the complex of caves and tunnels once used as a hiding spot for bin Laden. (One assessment calls the al-Qaeda's leader escape from there in the wake of the 9/11 attacks one of the US military's biggest military blunders.)
The Times sees it as a "strategic and symbolic victory" for ISIS over the Taliban, adding that ISIS sought to seize control of the area after the US dropped the "mother of all bombs" on a previous underground stronghold elsewhere in Afghanistan.
