The US-led air strike on a hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz that killed at least 19 people, including 12 staff of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) was "inexcusable" and possibly criminal, UN's human rights chief said, as the Pentagon ordered an investigation into the deadly raid.
Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein called for a full and transparent investigation, noting that, "if established as deliberate in a court of law, an air strike on a hospital may amount to a war crime".
"This event is utterly tragic, inexcusable and possibly even criminal," Zeid said in a statement.
Meinie Nicolai, MSF President, also condemned the attack as "abhorrent and a grave violation of International Humanitarian Law."
Yes we know all the usual excuses "We didn't mean it like the terrorists do" and "The terrorists were storing weapons there" etc. wears a little thin after the umpteenth time, and knowing they provided their GPS co-ordinates. This is terrorism plain and simple.
