KABUL, Afghanistan -- Medecins Sans Frontieres became the first major aid agency to quit Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban, saying today that the government failed to act on evidence that local warlords were behind the murder of five of its staff.
The Nobel prize-winning medical relief group, also known as Doctors Without Borders, denounced the U.S. military's use of aid to persuade Afghans to snitch on insurgents, saying it risked turning all relief workers into targets. It was also dismayed that Taliban rebels tried to claim responsibility for the June 2 attack on its staff.
The military apologized in May for distributing leaflets telling Afghans that they had to provide information on militants if they wanted assistance to continue.
