CENTCOM to release findings of probe into raid on MSF Hospital

CENTCOM to release findings of probe into raid on MSF Hospital

Apr 28, 2016 - 10:54

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The US military may release on Friday the findings of its investigation into the bombing of a Doctors Without Borders hospital in northern Kunduz province, an American TV channel reported.

At least 42 people, including patients and medics, were killed and many more wounded in the much-denounced airstrike on the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Trauma Centre in Kunduz City on Oct. 3, 2015.

CBS TV said US Central Command chief General Joseph Votel would announce the findings. CENTCOM would release a redacted version of the 3,000-page probe into the hospital assault, the channel added.

Following the deadly bombing, President Barack Obama himself apologised for the airstrike that was characterised as a "tragic mistake" by the US commander in Afghanistaninfo-icon, and a war crime by MSF.
