Doctors Without Borders said 42 people were killed during the 2015 air strike on its hospital in Kunduz, northern AfghanistanUS forces attacked a Doctors Without Borders hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz last year after a series of errors and will be disciplined, but they did not commit a war crime, their commander said Friday. General Joseph Votel said that on October 3, 2015, the crew of an AC-130 gunship had taken off earlier than planned without a list of protected sites and had been mistakenly guided to bombard the Kunduz trauma center. The general, head of US Central Command, said that 12 of the personnel involved -- commanders, flight crew and a special forces team on the ground -- had been suspended or removed from command and four others were reprimanded.

"I'm anticipating we'll be doing a victory dance," said Cox, 47, a chainsaw artist and founder of Bikers for Trump, thousands of whom he estimates will hit the Ohio city for the July 18-21 Republican National Convention. "But if the Republican Party tries to pull off any backroom deals and ignores the will of the people, our role will change." Bikers For Trump is part of a diverse array of groups coordinating to hold thousands-strong protests and marches if the real-estate mogul is denied outright victory at the Republican Party’s nominating convention in Cleveland.
