BAGHDAD, Jan 4 (Reuters) - Iraq’s Popular Mobilisation Forces umbrella grouping of paramilitary groups said on Saturday that an air strike targeting its fighters earlier hit a convoy of medics, not senior leaders as reported in some media.
“Initial sources confirm that the strike targeted a convoy of Popular Mobilisation Forces medics near Taji stadium in Baghdad,” it said in a statement.
The strikes killed six people and critically wounded three, an Iraqi army source told Reuters. (Reporting by Ahmed Aboulenein; Editing by Maha El Dahan)
