By Kay Johnson and Mehreen Zahra-Malik ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – The U.S. drone strike that killed Islamic State's commander for Afghanistan and Pakistan was the latest blow to the Middle East-led movement's ambitions to expand into a region where the long-established Taliban remain the dominant Islamist force.
