After the US bombing of the Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) hospital in Kunduz, BBC News have for some reason decided to ask in a headline whether it can be legal to bomb a hospital.

The BBC habitually asks questions such as this when war crimes are committed by allies of the UK government. It is hard to imagine that similar questions would be asked, if, for example, Russia had bombed a hospital.

Headline: Afghan conflict: Is it ever legal to bomb a hospital?
