Mourning for Iraq's coalition air strike victims

Funerals have taken place for some of the nine Iraqi service personnel who were accidentally killed in an air strike by the US-led coalition.

The US military said it happened "despite co-ordination with Iraqi security forces on the ground".

It took place near the city of Fallujah - in response to Iraqi requests for air support to help soldiers fighting so-called Islamic State militants.

Ben Bland reports.
