A brutal raid on a #hospital in western #Kabul, where Doctors Without Borders (MSF) operates a maternity ward, has left 13 people dead, including two infants. The attackers were killed after an hours-long standoff.

Gunmen stormed the 100-bed hospital located in the Dasht-e-Barchi area of the Afghan capital on Tuesday morning. At least two powerful explosions were heard at the scene, followed by gunfire, local media reported. The attack reportedly started with a suicide bomber setting off an explosion at the entrance to the compound, with men wearing military uniforms then storming in shooting guns and throwing grenades.
