Afghan I.S. leader killed by commandos
KABUL: The head of Islamic State in Afghanistan, believed to be the mastermind behind an assault on a military hospital that claimed at least 50 lives, has been killed, US and Afghan officials said. Abdul Hasib, whose group is affiliated with IS in Iraq and Syria, was killed last month by special forces in Nangarhar, the presidential palace in Kabul said. Nato commander General John Nicholson confirmed the killing and warned that “any IS member who comes to Afghanistan will meet the same fate”.
