US President Barack Obama has called Medecins Sans Frontieres chief Joanne Liu to apologise for theUS airstrike that killed 22 people, including 12 of her medical staff, in Afghanistan.
The charity has demanded an international probe into the hour-longstrike on its facility in the city ofKunduz on the weekend, which MSF earlier called a war crime.
“Our patients burned in their beds, MSF doctors, nurses and other staff were killed as they worked. Our colleagues had to operate on each other,” DrLiusaid of the chaos.
The hospitalhad treated nearly 400 people, including some Taliban, wounded in heavy fighting in the days before the attack, MSF’s BrunoJochumsaid.
Its GPSco-ordinates had been shared with all authorities – a procedural step that normally guarantees the safety of medical facilities.
The US military said the attack was an “accident”, then called it a “mistake”, but MSF said the US knew exactly what it had been bombing.
