Key MSF Publications about the Kunduz Hospital Attack

MSF Staff Killed and Hospital Partially Destroyed in Kunduz, Afghanistan.


Last updated on October 3, 2018

During the early morning hours of Saturday, October 3, 2015, MSF’s trauma hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, came under precise and repeated airstrikes by United States forces. The main hospital building, which housed the intensive care unit, emergency rooms, laboratory, X-ray, outpatient department, mental health, and physiotherapy ward, was hit with precision, repeatedly, during each aerial raid, while surrounding buildings were left mostly untouched. Even as the attack continued, our colleagues fought for their lives and for the lives of their patients with extraordinary determination and courage. On that tragic day, 42 people were killed, including 14 MSF colleagues.
