Kabul/Brussels – The international medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) condemns in the strongest possible terms the horrific aerial bombing of its hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Twelve staff members and at least seven patients, including three children, were killed; 37 people were injured including 19 staff members. This attack constitutes a grave violation of International Humanitarian Law.
All indications currently point to the bombing being carried out by international Coalition forces. MSF demands a full and transparent account from the Coalition regarding its aerial bombing activities over Kunduz on Saturday morning. MSF also calls for an independent investigation of the attack to ensure maximum transparency and accountability.
“This attack is abhorrent and a grave violation of International Humanitarian Law,” said Meinie Nicolai, MSF President. “We demand total transparency from Coalition forces. We cannot accept that this horrific loss of life will simply be dismissed as ‘collateral damage’.”

What is happening here on ATS?
Do you people not know what has happened? Do the public not know what happened? This is a blatant war crime.
The media is not reporting on this. What the hell?
The head of US led forces in Afghanistan has said this is possible "collateral damage". They knew this was a medical facility and continually hit it even though it was marked and phone calls where sent out to call it off.
This for me is the most blatant black out of an event like this I have ever seen.
Doctors and patients have been blown to pieces. Children have been burned in their hospital beds.
This was all done knowingly straight from the head of the US led forces
Where are you ATS members who want to end this kind of criminal activity? This thread is too quiet. What the hell is going on?
