A US air strike that may have hit a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, on Saturday targeted Taliban insurgents who were directly firing on U.S. servicemembers, the US military said in a statement.

The air strike was conducted "in the vicinity" of a Medecins Sans Frontieres hospital in Kunduz, the statement said, adding that the US military has opened an investigation into the incident, which the aid group says killed at least 19 people.
