Survivals of the US airstrike on the hospital want justice

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Survivors and the families of those killed in a U.S. airstrike on a hospital run by the medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in the Afghan city of Kunduz are dismayed that those responsible will not face criminal charges.

Zabihullah Neyazi, a nurse who lost his left arm and eye and a finger on his right hand in the attack, told The Associated Press Friday that the incident was “not forgivable.” He says he and other victims “want justice.”

Neyazi is waiting for a visa to travel to India for further medical treatment.

The Pentagon is expected to release a report Friday investigating the mistakes that led to the bombing, which killed 42 people. It says that the U.S. military personnel responsible will receive administrative punishments but not criminal charges.
