The international medical charity, Doctors Without Borders, has released an internal document reviewing the October three airstrikes by US forces on its hospital in northern Afghanistan.
MSF General Director Christopher Stokes said the attack was conducted with a purpose to kill and destroy. The internal review describes patients burning in their beds and others who were shot from the air while they fled the burning building. The report said there were no armed combatants or fighting within or from the hospital grounds. The document is based upon sixty debriefings of national and international employees of Doctors Without Borders. At least thirty people were killed in the US airstrikes. The dead included 13 staff members and ten patients. Seven bodies have yet to be identified.
