US to compensate victims of Kunduz hospital bombing

  • The Pentagon will compensate victims of the US airstrike on a hospital in Afghanistan’s Kunduz town that killed at least 22 staff and patients a week ago.

    The US says the strike on the Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) hospital was a mistake, but MSF has described the attack as a "war crime" and demanded an international probe.

    According to a Pentagon spokesperson, the Department of Defence believed it was “important to address the consequences of the tragic incident” at the Kunduz hospital.
