The US has carried out a drone strike on the Islamic State (IS) group in eastern Afghanistan, killing a member of the group, military officials say.

The operation targeted a "planner" from the IS-K group in Nangahar Province.

IS-K said it had carried out an attack in Kabul on Thursday that may have killed as many as 170 people, including 13 US troops.

The US said "initial indications" suggested the strike had killed the IS target, and no civilians had died.

    The unmanned airstrike occurred in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. Initial indications are that we killed the target," Urban said in a statement on late Friday.
