No protected status assurances yet from warring parties: MSF (Video)
KABUL (Pajhwok): Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) on Monday once again demanded complete assurances on the protected status of medical care from the US forces, the Afghan government and militants before resuming work in northern Kunduz province.
At least 42 people, including patients and medics, were killed and many more wounded in the much-denounced airstrike on MSF Trauma Centre in Kunduz City on Oct. 3, 2015.
The Pentagon on Friday announced that 16 military personnel will be disciplined for the deadly US strike on the hospital, but maintained that it was not a war crime because it resulted from unintentional human error and equipment failure.
