In Mosul, Mortars and Mayhem Persist
The fight for western Mosul goes on as the U.S.-led coalition says it may be responsible for airstrikes that killed hundreds of civilians.

The battle for western Mosul, including the narrow alleyways of the old city, looks to be the most devastating yet for Iraqi civilians trapped between advancing troops and increasingly desperate Islamic State militants. An estimated 750 civilians have been killed or wounded since the push to retake the western half of the city began in late January, and more than 100,000 have fled.
Residents carry the bodies of several people killed during fights between Iraq security forces and Islamic State on the western side of Mosul, March 24. Residents of the Iraqi city's neighborhood known as Mosul Jidideh at the scene say that scores of residents are believed to have been killed by airstrikes that hit a cluster of homes in the area earlier this month.
