The death toll from a devastating US air strike on an Afghan hospital in October has risen to 42, medical charity MSF says, citing an internal investigation.

The October 3 bombing of the hospital in the northern city of Kunduz during a Taliban offensive forced the facility to close and sparked an avalanche of global condemnation.

The charity has said the raid by a AC-130 gunship lasted nearly an hour and left patients burning in their beds with some victims decapitated and suffering traumatic amputations.
