Medecins Sans Frontieres, also known as Doctors Without Borders continued Thursday to press its demand for an independent investigation of the tragic U.S. airstrike that hit a hospital run by the medical charity in northern Afghanistan, killing 22 people.

    Thirty-three people remain unaccounted for five days after the deadly U.S. bombing of a Doctors Without Borders hospital, the charity's representative in Afghanistan said Thursday, NBC News reported.

    Speaking to reporters in Kabul, Guilhem Molinie said 24 of the 461 hospital staff members working in the Kunduz trauma center are still missing.

    He added that 105 patients were inside the hospital when the airstrike hit and nine of them were still unaccounted for on Thursday.

    Saturday's airstrike killed 22 people. A further 37 people were injured.

    Molinie told the press conference that a hotline has been created to ensure that family members and relatives could call in with information about those still missing.
