CHICAGO, April 24 (Reuters) - 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. (Reporting by Nick Carey in Chicago and David Bailey in Minneapolis; Editing by Scott Malone)
