Apparent US Airstrike Hits MSF Hospital in Afghanistan

05 October 2015 - 08:49 AM



An apparent US airstrike on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (also known as Médecins Sans Frontières, or MSF) in Afghanistan's Kunduz province killed at least 19 people, including 12 staff members, early Saturday morning.

The bombing began at 2:08am local time and, according to the humanitarian organization, continued for more than 30 minutes "after American and Afghan military officials in Kabul and Washington were first informed by MSF that its hospital was struck." MSF said seven intensive care patients were killed, including three children.

US Forces in Afghanistan acknowledged conducting a strike at 2:15am Saturday morning against "individuals threatening the force."

"The strike may have resulted in collateral damage to a nearby medical facility," US Army Colonel Brian Tribus, a spokesman for US forces in Afghanistan said in a statement, adding that the incident is under investigation.

This news story hits particularly close to home as someone pursuing a career in medicine. It's a terrible tragedy and hopefully it's something to not be repeated.

What have you learned?

When we were younger, we thought we knew everything about the world. However, growing up it seems to make us realize very harshly that we don't know anything at all.

What are some of the biggest lessons you have learned growing up? Has your idea of your future changed since childhood?
