WASHINGTON - Eleven civilians were killed in four separate air strikes by the US-led coalition fighting Islamic State in Iraq and Syria between Oct. 25 and Dec. 9, the US military said on Thursday.

"Although the Coalition takes extraordinary efforts to strike military targets in a manner that minimizes the risk to civilian casualties, in some incidents casualties are unavoidable," the military said in a statement.

It added that 10 reports of civilians casualties were still being investigated.
