WASHINGTON:At a White House news briefing, Earnest also said that he was not aware of any US official report indicating the presence of Pakistani spies in a hospital in Kunduz. Last month, US warplanes bombed the hospital, killing several members of the staff and a number of patients. The bombing also forced MSF, a French charity, to close down the hospital.
A Us media report claimed on Thursday that American analysts believed a ‘Pakistani operative’ was using the hospital for Taliban activity.
Earnest said the US Department of Defence had not yet submitted a report on the incident as it was still investigating the matter.
Responding to another question that Pakistani operatives were involved in last month’s Taliban assault on Kunduz, the White House official said: “I haven’t seen any reports to that effect, so I can’t confirm that from here.”
