Report: U.S. Warplane Crew Didn’t Know Bombing Target Was Hospital

31 civilians killed in deadly Afghanistan attack.

“The crew of a U.S. warplane that attacked a medical charity’s hospital in northern Afghanistan last month misidentified the target, believing it to be a government compound taken over by the Taliban, according to an investigation report obtained Wednesday.

The report said the crew of the U.S. AC-130 gunship relied on a physical description of the compound provided by Afghan forces, which led the crew to attack the wrong target. It said the intended target, thought to be under Taliban control and being used in part as a prison, was 450 yards away from the hospital.” [READ MORE]
