Doctors Without Borders Attacked

On October 4th a United States air strike hit a MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières) hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. MSF, the medical charity is known for its humanitarian work in war torn areas. Their approach of being the ‘first in and last out’ won them the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.
The strike killed more than than 20 people and more than half of those who died worked for MSF. The United States military said that it was ‘collateral damage’ by Afghan special forces (being advised by US Special forces) who were targeting the Taliban. NATO has called for the United States to do a full investigation into the matter. However, MSF deny that there were any Taliban within their compound and insist that the US had just been given their GPS co-ordinates, so should have known that this was a medical facility. MSF feel that there should be an independent and transparent investigation into the attacks in order to find out what really happened.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out there.VA:F [1s0629_11.6]plea.e wait…(1 vote cast)VA:F [1.9.20_1166](from 1 vote)
