MSF still seeking answers one month after Kunduz hospital airstrike

On 3 October 2015 airstrikes led by US coalition forces killed at least 30 people.

23 staff and patients at a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Afghanistan died, in addition to seven unidentified bodies found in the wreckage.

A month later, MSF officials are still mourning and looking for answers.

There's a lot to deal with. The aftermath is significant and it is a major trauma for the MSF family. We still have many unanswered questions.

Dan Sermand, MSF interim general director

Listen to the full conversation from The Redi Tlhabi Show:

Interim general director, Dan Sermand said that apologies from officials will not replace the need for an explanation of the events of that day.

Several investigations and commissions of inquiry are ongoing.

The MSF has requested an independent international commission and have rallied support through a public petition.

Just last week the MSF supported hospital in Saada province in northern Yemen came under attack.

MSF estimates that this will leave 200 000 people with no access to lifesaving medical care.
