MSF delivers petition to White House over hospital strike


WASHINGTON, D.C.: Doctors Without Borders (MSF) delivered a petition signed by 547,000 people to the White House Wednesday demanding an independent investigation into a deadly US strike on one of its hospitals in Afghanistan. The October 3 bombing of the hospital in the northern city of Kunduz killed 30 people and forced the charity to close the trauma center — the only one in the region — while sparking global condemnation. General John Campbell, the US commander in Afghanistan, said late last month the strike was “caused primarily by human error,” but refused to say if there would be an independent investigation.
