Some in US military suspended for Afghan hospital attack

The US commander in Afghanistan says some of those most closely involved in the mistaken air attack on a hospital in Kunduz have been suspended from their duties. Gen. John Campbell isn’t giving names or saying how many people have been temporarily removed from their jobs. He said at a news conference Wednesday in the Afghanistan capital that those individuals will be subject to investigation under the military justice or administrative discipline systems. Brig. Gen. Wilson Shoffner says some military personnel involved in the airstrike violated US rules of engagement, but he’s not being more specific.
