(USA Today) At least 19 people were killed, including 12 Doctors Without Borders staff members and seven patients, and another 37 wounded after a suspected U.S. airstrike early Saturday at the organization's hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan.
The organization said the hospital was hit several times during "sustained bombing" starting at 2:10 a.m. Saturday and continuing in 15-minute intervals for more than an hour. Its president called it a "grave violation of international humanitarian law," and the United Nation's top human rights official said it may prove to be a war crime.
Three of the dead were children, Doctors Without Borders said. Of the 37 people wounded, 19 are staff members, and 18 are patients or caregivers.
