CHICAGO, April 24 A Chicago pediatrician was
among those killed in an attack on a Kabul hospital funded by
the U.S. Christian charity Cure International on Thursday, a
clinic where the doctor worked in Chicago said.
"For nearly a decade, Dr. Jerry Umanos volunteered in
Afghanistan to train medical residents and to see pediatric
patients," said Dr. Bruce Rowell, a medical director of clinical
quality at Chicago's Lawndale Christian Health Center.
"This loss is a great loss for his family, for those of us
he worked with, as well as for the people of Afghanistan,"
Rowell told a news conference.
