At a camp near Mosul, Iraq is holding about 1,400 foreign women and children who are suspected family members of Islamic State fighters. Most of the women are believed to be from Turkey, but authorities are still verifying their identities. Their male relatives are presumably being held by Kurdish forces.
About 3,000 Christians were able to return to their homes in Hamdaniya and Tel Saqf.
At least 68 people were killed and 11 more were wounded:
The bodies of two women were found in Mosul.
In Qaim, Rawah, and Anah, Coalition airstrikes left five civilians wounded and 17 militants dead.
An Iraqi soldier was killed while defusing a bomb in Baghdadi.
A bomb in Jurf al-Sakhar wounded six militiamen.
In Kaske, 16 militants were killed.
Security forces near Naft Khana and Imam Weis killed 14 militants.
Twelve militants were killed in Mayta and Adeliya.
An airstrike on Hawija killed four militants including a police chief.
