Cockpit crew in Doctors Without Borders hospital airstrike questioned its legality

NBC News says the crew in the gunship that carried out a strike on 3 October 2015 against the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, questioned whether it was legal.

The airstrike killed at least 24 hospital staff and patients.

According to the NBC reporter, "If the crew knew the target was a hospital filled with civilians, and launched the attack anyway, that's a war crime."
