(KABUL) — A medical aid group on Sunday struck back at allegations that Taliban fighters were operating in an Afghan hospital that was bombarded by U.S. forces, leaving at least 22 dead on Saturday.
“We reject reports that any Taliban were inside the hospital at the time of bombing or if any shots were fired,” Kate Stegeman, communications manager for Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres / MSF) in Kabul told NBC News.
The hospital was hit by a coalition airstrike on 2:15 a.m. local time on Saturday (5:45 p.m. ET Friday).
