Humanitarian disaster looms as 82,000 Iraqis flee Fallujah

Published: Updated:

The United Nations says thousands of civilians continue to flee Fallujah after most of the city was declared liberated from the Islamic State group.

Tens of thousands of civilians escaped the city, just 50 kilometres (30 miles) west of Baghdad, on the back of a major advance that saw Iraqi forces thrust into central Fallujah in recent days.
