Background Doab Hospital Nooristan Province:
Doab district - and two other north-south valleys - is astride one of the principal infiltration routes from Pakistan’s tribal areas through the towering Hindu Kush for insurgents who are fighting to overthrow Afghan government.
Police started using the hospital building as their rest house after their own building was destroyed during clashes with militants. All staff of the hospital had been assigned duty at other health facilities.(20141012)
