U.S. Military Acknowledges More Than 100 Died In Mosul Strike

U.S. Military Acknowledges More Than 100 Died In Mosul Strike | HuffPost: 

Air Force Brigadier General Matthew Isler, who oversaw the investigation, told reporters that the March 17 strike was aimed at two Islamic State snipers.
However, the 500-pound bomb triggered explosives inside the concrete building, collapsing it onto civilians.
Isler said the United States and nearby Iraqi forces did not know there were civilians in the building or that it had been rigged with explosives.
He added that 101 civilians inside the building were killed, four civilians were killed in nearby, and 36 civilians were still not accounted for.
Prior to this investigation, the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State said that at least 352 civilians have been killed in strikes it carried out in Iraq and Syria since 2014. That estimate is far lower than those provided by outside groups.
