AFP , Sunday 26 Mar 2017

The top commander for US military forces in the Middle East on Sunday called recent civilian deaths in the Iraqi city of Mosul a "terrible tragedy" but stopped short of taking responsibility.

"We are investigating the incident to determine exactly what happened and will continue to take extraordinary measures to avoid harming civilians," General Joseph Votel, who heads the US Central Command (Centcom), said in a statement.
