Mosul, Iraq

Excerpt from the article:

“The Reuters TV crew reported seeing dead bodies lying on Saturday in Zanjili – one of three frontline districts still in the hands of IS.

‘Over the past two days ISIS (Islamic State) has been shooting people escaping this area,’ Dave Eubank from the Free Burma Rangers relief association told the news agency.

He described seeing more than 50 bodies, but said they had managed to rescue a little girl and a man.

Some of those trying to escape have reportedly been injured in a coalition air strikes targeting IS fighters.”
