Statement by Secretary of Defense Ash Carter On the Tragedy in Kunduz, Afghanistan

Washington, DC--(ENEWSPF)--October 6, 2015.

Today, Commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan General John Campbell informed Congress that a U.S. military airstrike in Kunduz, Afghanistan, to support Afghan forces on the ground resulted in a mistaken attack on a Doctors Without Borders field hospital.  Doctors Without Borders does important work all around the world, and the Department of Defense deeply regrets the loss of innocent lives that resulted from this tragic event. The investigation into how this could have happened is continuing, and we are fully supporting NATO and Afghanistan's concurrent investigations . . .
