Civilians Paid A High Price In Mosul
Amnesty International is out with a report that criticizes the U.S.-led coalition for civilian deaths in the Iraqi offensive to retake Mosul from ISIS. A spokesman for the coalition calls the report "irresponsible." The report cites civilian deaths in U.S. air strikes, but also acknowledges ISIS held civilians as hostages and executed some.
Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with the BBC's Jonathan Beale (@bealejonathan) about the civilian toll from the fighting in Mosul.
