Medecins Sans Frontieres Says Nine Staff Died in Kunduz Bombing

Medecins Sans Frontieres said nine employees were killed in an airstrike on a hospital in the Kunduz area of Afghanistan.

At least 37 people were wounded including 19 members of the charity’s staff, MSF said in a statement on its website.

The bombing -- early on Saturday morning -- continued for more than 30 minutes after U.S. and Afghan officials were asked to stop, the aid group said.

Afghan government forces, backed by the U.S. Air Force, are fighting the Taliban for control of the northern city.
