The resurgence of the terrorist group Islamic State Khorasan — also known as ISIS-K — in Afghanistan is presenting an increasing challenge to the Taliban's rule.

ISIS-K has already claimed responsibility for numerous attacks in Kabul, including a Jan. 11 suicide bombing outside the Afghan foreign ministry that left anywhere between five and 20 people dead. An Italian nongovernmental organization reported treating more than 40 people after the blast.
