An air strike in northern Afghanistan has killed at least 19 people, including three children, at a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Twelve staff members are among the dead at the hospital in Kunduz. The U.S. military has acknowledged it conducted a pre-dawn airstrike in the area that may have caused collateral damage to a medical facility.
