Dataviz: The civilians killed targeting ISIS

The US-led bombing campaign against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) has killed hundreds of civilians in Iraq and Syria, despite official recognition of only two deaths, a new report has alleged. 

Up to 591 civilians have been killed by coalition bombs in the year-long battle to push back the Islamist militants, the report says. The toll is dwarfed by that of ISIS, but the Airwars group, which produced the research, alleges that the failure of the United States and other nations to release enough information creates space for the Islamists' propaganda to grow.
