An airstrike in Syria killed entire families instead of Isis fighters

The airstrikes at dawn on Tuesday pulverised entire families, including young children -- families that were fleeing Islamic State militants but were instead mistaken for being those very fighters. Depending on whom you ask, the number of bodies found in the rubble is 56, 85, 160 or 212. Pictures of the mangled bodies, covered in dust, are a testament to the carnage.
