NEW YORK, 3 October 2015 – “All of us at UNICEF are shocked and saddened by the death of aid workers from Medecins Sans Frontieres and their patients, after an airstrike on a hospital in northern Afghanistan today.

“We join with the families, colleagues and friends of those who lost their lives, and of those who were injured, in mourning the loss of true heroes dedicated to making the world a better place.

“They and the humanitarian workers risking their own lives for others in some of the most dangerous places in the world deserve our unrelenting admiration.”
