Geneva (ICRC) - The ICRC regrets the accident that seriously wounded one of its collaborators, Mr Hubert Patry, 30 years old and originating from Geneva. The accident, through a lost bullet, occurred in the afternoon of Saturday the 17th of June, in Mazar-i-Sharif, in the north of Afghanistan.

The wounded delegate was evacuated first to the military hospital in Peshawar (Pakistan) and subsequently to Geneva. His condition is stable.

The ICRC has no reason to believe that it was the sought target.
