IS chief in Afghanistan killed by US air strike

A US air strike has reportedly killed the chief of the IS in an Afghan province, along with three other senior members of the group.

The US military command in Kabul says the demise of Abdul Rahman, the chief of IS in the province of Kunar, is another blow to the militant group.

Nearly 2,000 weapons have been dropped by the US forces in the country as of July, vowing to end the reign of IS in Afghanistan this year.

Meanwhile, local officials said 16 civilians were killed by another air strike in Nangarhar in April, but American officials have disputed that claim.
