AFP , Wednesday 13 May 2015

The US military denied that coalition aircraft bombed a mosque in Iraq after Baghdad officials said American-led warplanes had targeted Islamic State jihadists meeting at the mosque in Tal Afar.

US Central Command, which is overseeing the air war against the IS group in Iraq and Syria, said "we can confirm that coalition aircraft did not strike a mosque as some of the press reporting has alleged."
