[Awas: Laporan ini dipetik daripada (agensi) akhbar Amerika. Tajuknya dia sebut klinik yang kena bom, tetapi bila melapurkan kenyataan PBB dia sebut 'hospital' seperti yang didakwa oleh Taliban. Di CNN, menteri perang George Bush, tidak mengaku berlakunya pengeboman hospital itu, dan mengatakan cakap Taliban tidak boleh dipercayai - penterjemah]


PBB Kata AS Bom Klinik Tentera

Oleh: Associated Press (AP)

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - PBB telah memperakukan satu laporan (Taliban) yang mengatakan AS telah mengbom satu hospital tentera di bahagian barat bandar Herat, tetapi ia tidak mempunyai maklumat mengenai tahap bencana yang berlaku.

Pemimpn Taliban pernah menyebut bahawa serangan udara British dan AS pada hari Isnin itu telah memusnahkan sebuah hospital, dan membunuh lebih 100 pesakit dan petugas hospital. Mereka tidak menyebut apakah hospital itu kepunyaan awam ataupun tentera.

Britain menafikan pembabitan pesawatnya menyerang Herat, dan Pentagon juga menyebut tidak tahu-menahu akan perkara itu. Tidak ada sebarang reaksi kepada dakwaan PBB itu.

Jurucakap PBB Stephen Bunker, sambil mengutip sumber PBB di Afghanistan, telah berkata pada hari Selasa bahawa sebiji bom telah gugur mengena hospital tentera dalam kawasan ketenteraan di Herat.

Pegawai PBB tidak dapat mengesahkan apakah hospital itu digunakan ketika itu ataupun apakah ada orang awam dan tentera yang cedera, demikian kata bunker di Islamabad.

Pemipin Taliban telah menghalau hampir semua wartawan asing, menyulitkan pihak media membuat taksiran bebas terhadap bencana yang dialami oleh orang awam sepanjang kempen serangan udara yang sudah berjalan lebih dua minggu itu.

Tamat.

U.N.: U.S. Bomb Hit Military Clinic

The Associated Press
Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2001

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- The United Nations confirmed Tuesday that a U.S. bomb had struck a military hospital in the western Afghan city of Herat but said it had no information regarding casualties.

Afghanistan's Taliban rulers had said a U.S. and British airstrike Monday hit a hospital, killing more than 100 patients and medical workers. They did not say whether it was a civilian or military hospital.

Britain denied its planes took part in any raid against Herat, and the Pentagon said it had no specific information about the purported incident. There was no immediate reaction to the U.N. comment.

U.N. spokeswoman Stephanie Bunker, citing independent U.N. sources within Afghanistan, said Tuesday that a bomb hit a military hospital within a military compound on Harat's eastern edge.

U.N. officials did not know whether the hospital was being used at the time, or whether any civilians or military personnel may have been hurt, Bunker said in Islamabad.

Afghanistan's Taliban rulers have expelled almost all foreign journalists, making it difficult for media to come up with independent assessments of civilian casualties in the more than two-week-old air campaign.
