BAGHDAD, Jan 4 (Reuters) - Iraq’s military denied on Saturday an air strike had taken place on a medical convoy in Taji, north of Baghdad.
Iraq’s Popular Mobilisation Forces umbrella grouping of paramilitary groups had said earlier on Saturday said that an air strike targeting its fighters hit a convoy of medics.
However, the PMF later issued another statement saying that no medical convoys were targeted in Taji. (Reporting By Ahmed Aboulenein; Writing By Maha El Dahan; Editing by Toby Chopra)
