US: Drone strike kills 'ISIS-K planner'

The US Central Command said on Friday that the US conducted a drone strike against a member of the militant group ISIS-K believed to be involved in planning terrorist attacks.

It also said initial indications are that the strike in Nangarhar Province, eastern Afghanistan, killed the target.

The US strike is seen as retaliation against an apparent suicide bombing near Kabul's airport on Thursday, in which many civilians and 13 US service members were killed.
