July 12, Kabul: The leader of Islamic State group in Afghanistan and Pakistan region Hafiz Saeed has been killed in a drone strike, the Afghan Intelligence Agency said.

The Agency said Saeed died in Achin in Afghanistan‘s eastern Nangarhar province on Friday night but IS has rejected the claims telling he was still alive. Some 30 other militants were also reportedly killed in the strike, but there has been no independent verification, sources said.

Saeed was the most prominent of a group of fighters who appeared in a video in January, apparently filmed in Pakistan, pledging allegiance to the self-styled Islamic State. Malvi Abdurrahim Muslimdost, a leader of the group in Afghanistan has also died, sources said.
