Afghan conflict: MSF clinic staff killed in Kunduz airstrike

  • At least nine members of the medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) have been killed and dozens of people injured after its clinic in Afghanistan’s Kunduz city was hit by an air strike.

    Nato has admitted that the clinic may have been struck by a US airstrike.

    Kunduz has seen heavy fighting since Taliban forces entered the city. Government forces have claimed they have re-taken the northern city, but the Taliban deny this.

    MSF said more than 30 staff were still unaccounted for. Bart Janssens, the MSF director of operations, said the organisation was “deeply shocked” by the attack.
