Doctors Without Borders Pulls Out of Afghanistan

After 24 years of independent aid to the people of Afghanistan, Doctors Without Borders withdraws. Following the murder of five aid workers, Doctors Without Borders is leaving. In a press conference, the international aid organization said "Although government officials have presented MSF (Médecins Sans Frontière) with credible evidence that local commanders conducted the attack, they have neither detained nor publicly called for their arrest. The lack of government response to the killings represents a failure of responsibility and an inadequate commitment to the safety of aid workers on its soil." This sounds ominous.
