CIVIC Statement on US Airstrike Kunduz

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to our colleagues at Medecins San Frontieres (MSF) and the families of those killed and injured in the September 30 US airstrike on the MSF hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Twelve staff members and ten patients lost their lives in this tragic incident. Investigations are currently underway by both the US and NATO’s Resolute Support Mission and we urge both parties to make public the results, to amend policies and procedures to ensure this does not happen again, and to recognize and provide appropriate post harm assistance to the victims and their families.
