Air strikes carried out in recent days have killed dozens of civilians in west Mosul, where Iraqi forces are battling the Islamist militants, officials said on Saturday.

Bashar al-Kiki, the head of the Nineveh provincial council, said that "dozens" of bodies were still buried under rubble in the city, while provincial governor Nawfal Hammadi said that more than 130 civilians had been killed.

It was not possible to independently confirm the tolls from the strikes in Mosul, the capital of Nineveh province and Iraq's second city.
