IS mortars kill 16 Iraqi civilians in Mosul

AP  |  Mosul 

Iraqi military and hospital officials say mortar rounds fired by Islamic State militants have killed 16 civilians in neighbourhoods already retaken by troops.

They said the bodies of the 16, killed overnight and early today, have been brought to military hospitals in eastern Mosul.



The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media.

In Mosul, an Associated Press team in eastern Mosul today says scores of civilians are continuing to stream out of the inner neighbourhoods of the city to escape the fighting, making their way to camps for the displaced.

The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, says at least 73,000 Iraqis have fled Mosul since the government's campaign to retake the city began on October 17.
