Local sources in Haditha reported that up to 15 civilians were killed and an unknown number were injured after an alleged coalition airstrike hit Albu Haiyat mosque at midday prayers. Al Iraq News stated that among those killed were captured “members of the Iraqi security forces who are were being guarded at the mosque.”
However an internal CENTCOM review concluded that “nearest coalition strike to Haditha was 34km and was not within close enough proximity to be considered credible.”
The Iraqi Spring Media Centre named ten of those it said were killed.
Others reported that 12 of those killed were brothers and cousins from the same clan, the Sbahnas – the eldest aged 90.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
Family members (10)
