The investigation by the US military into the bombing of the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) hospital in Afghanistan has taken longer than expected because of problems identifying the civilians casualties, US DoD spokesperson Peter Cook stated on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On October 3, the United States carried out airstrikes on the well-known MSF hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Initial reports indicated that 22 people had been killed, including doctors and patients.

“The CCAT [Combined Civilian Casualty Assessment Team] investigation… there have been several reasons for delay,” Cook said. “The actual identification of the casualties… has proven to be much more problematic than they expected going in.”

US investigators, Cook noted, are working closely with MSF and Afghan authorities to identify the victims.
