MSF leaves Kunduz, call for independent inquiry after hospital strike

MSF leaves Kunduz after hospital strike -

It is the only medical facility in the whole northeastern region of Afghanistan that can deal with major war injuries. Its closure, even temporarily, could have a devastating impact on local civilians.
"The MSF hospital is not functional anymore. All critical patients have been referred to other health facilities and no MSF staff are working in our hospital," Kate Stegeman, a spokeswoman for the charity, told AFP on Sunday.
"I can't confirm at this stage whether our Kunduz trauma centre will reopen or not."
