U.S. Warplane Allegedly Shot Escapees at Kunduz Hospital
According to Doctors Without Borders, a U.S. warplane shot people trying to escape the Kunduz, Afghanistan, charity hospital that was destroyed in airstrikes last month. “Thirty of our patients and medical staff died [in the bombing],” a spokesman for the medical chartiy said. “Some of them lost their limbs and were decapitated in the explosions. Others were shot by the circling gunship while fleeing the burning building.” The hospital was bombed Oct. 3 when U.S. forces attempted to aid the Afghan government in staving off Taliban insurgents in the city.
