Afghan hospital air strike: 9 dead, MSF says location known

The medical charity MSF says air strikes on its hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz continued for more than 30 minutes after US and Afghan authorities were told of its location.

In a statement, MSF has condemned “in the strongest possible terms the horrific bombing of its hospital”.
MSF says the number of its staff killed has risen to nine, from three.

US forces were carrying out air strikes at the time. The Nato alliance has admitted the clinic may have been hit.

    Notice that “civilian casualties” only occur when the Americans or Israelis conduct military action.
    Odd that!

    • Heh;)

      As in all irregular warfare, a dead civilian is often someone whose gun has been taken by another jihadi.

    This is why Taliban, Al-Queda, and Isis tend to house assets near
    hospitals, schools and residential areas. This hospital was being
    used as a shield.

      Don’t forget the mosques/arsenals.

    The Taliban are using civilians as human shields and MSF have to accept it or they will not be allowed to operate there.
    SOP for that part of the world.
    MSF needs to come home as they are only serving evil, along with their own egos.
