An aerial bombing has killed at least 19 people at a hospital run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in the Afghan city of Konduz.

According to the aid group, at least 12 MSF staff, four adult patients and three children died – raising an earlier estimate of the death toll.

Kunduz has been the scene of recent heavy fighting between Taliban and Afghan forces supported by NATO.

In a statement the MSF group said the incident was an “aerial attack” but it is still unclear if it was carried out by Afghan or US forces.

A NATO spokesman is reported as saying the incident is under investigation.

Clashes have been going on the the northern provincial capital since the Taliban took control of the city a week ago.
