ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's president says Russian airstrikes that have targeted some foreign-back insurgents in Syria are unacceptable and warned Moscow that it runs the risk of alienating itself in the region.
Medical charity MSF said Sunday it has withdrawn staff from the embattled Afghan city of Kunduz, a day after an apparent US bombing raid on its hospital which the UN said could amount to a war crime. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said 19 people were killed, some of whom burned to death in their beds as the bombardment continued for more than an hour, even after US and Afghan authorities were informed the hospital had been hit. It is the only medical facility in the whole northeastern region of Afghanistan that can deal with major war injuries and its closure, even temporarily, could have a devastating impact on local civilians.
