The US military says it has carried out a drone strike against a Daesh planner in eastern Afghanistan. The military said the strike took place in Nangarhar province. It said the initial indications are that the target was killed. The drone strike took place early on Saturday, two days after a bomb attack hit Kabul airport. The attack was claimed by the Daesh terror group. According to US media, it killed at least 180 people including 13 U-S service members. The attack was the deadliest for American forces in Afghanistan in over a decade. It took place as Afghans and foreign nationals were awaiting evacuation, two weeks after the Taliban takeover of Kabul.
