Doctors without Borders vacate Kunduz Hospital

Volunteers from the world-renowned organization, Doctor without Borders(MSF), were reported as "being under siege" from aerial bombardment at a medical facility in Afghanistan. MSF proclaims that on October 3, 2017, from 2:08 a.m. until 3:15 a.m, Kunduz Hospital was allegedly struck by a salvo of bombs from a NATO airstrike. On their website, MSF announced that 12 MSF staffers were killed with an additional 19 members injured.

Josh Earnest, the spokesperson for The White House, stated US President Barack Obama expressed his condolences to the members of the nonprofit organization. In addition, President Obama spoke with both MSF's President Joanne Liu and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to express his sincere regret for the incident. Reuters also reports that President Obama would "provide a transparent, thorough and objective accounting of the facts and circumstances of the incident. And that, if necessary, the president would implement changes to make tragedies like this one less likely to occur in the future."
