US-led coalition strike may have killed Iraqi soldiers: US military

A grab from an AFP video shows smoke billowing behind buildings following a US-led coalition air strike against positions of the Islamic State (IS) group on January 22, 2015 in the Tameem district of Ramadi of IraqAn air strike by the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State may have killed Iraqi soldiers on Friday, the US military said, in what was likely the first “friendly fire” incident in the war on the extremists. It appears to be the same incident which Iraq’s joint operations command earlier said left 10 Iraqi soldiers killed or wounded south of the jihadist stronghold of Fallujah. “Despite coordination with the Iraqi security forces on the ground, initial reports indicate the possibility one of the strikes resulted in the death of Iraqi soldiers,” the US military said in a statement, adding that it would launch an investigation.
