In Iraq, U.S.-backed Iraqi forces battled ISIS on the edges of Mosul’s Old City today, as a top Iraqi general claimed his troops were slowing their offensive to prevent more civilian deaths. The fighting came as Iraqi officials said Wednesday they’ve pulled nearly 300 bodies from the site where a March 17 airstrike buried civilians seeking shelter from the violence. The U.S. commander in the fight against ISIS acknowledged there’s “at least a fair chance” the U.S.-led coalition was responsible for the deaths.
