Following an attack at Kabul airport this week, two “high-profile” Islamic State militants were killed during a U.S. drone strike in Afghanistan, Pentagon officials said Saturday, according to the Washington Post.

When two suicide bombings occurred outside the airport Thursday 13 U.S. service members were killed, along with at least 60 Afghans, said the Pentagon and Afghanistan's Ministry of Public Health. In addition to the 13 killed, other service members were injured, CNN reported. Overall, 170 people were killed in the blasts and an estimated 200 were injured.
