President Barack Obama has pledged a full investigation into an apparent U.S. airstrike on an Afghan hospital that killed 19 people, in a bombing the U.N. said could amount to a war crime.Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said patients burned to death in their beds during a bombing raid that continued for half an hour after U.S. and Afghan authorities were informed the hospital had been hit. MSF has denied any combatants were present in the hospital.NATO earlier conceded U.S. forces may have been behind the bombing, after forces launched a strike they said was intended to target militants.MSF said some 105 patients and their caregivers, as well as more than 80 international and local MSF staff, were in the hospital, the only medical facility in the area that can deal with major injuries, at the time of the bombing.
