Up to 27 civilians possibly killed by Canadian air strike: Pentagon papers

The allegation that Canadian warplanes killed civilians during a Jan. 21 air strike against Islamic State forces – information the military kept under wraps for seven months – came from Canada’s Kurdish allies in Iraq, documents show.

Newly released Pentagon records are shedding more light on an accusation against CF-18 fighter pilots first reported by The Globe and Mail last month. The Canadian military says it never investigated the matter because coalition forces found no evidence to support the charge.
