19 people, including members of the medical team, are killed in a hospital

International medical charity Doctors Without Borders said on Sunday it has withdrawn from the northern Afghan city of Kunduz after a deadly airstrike destroyed its hospital, killing 19 people.

The humanitarian crisis in the city, which briefly fell to the Taliban last week before the government launched a counter-offensive, has grown increasingly dire, with shops shuttered because of ongoing fighting and roads made impassable by mines planted by insurgents.
