Iraqi Forces with US Help Attempt to Retake Fallujah from ISIS

Hosted by

Some 50,000 civilians are said to be trapped in the Iraqi city of Fallujah after this week's launch of a major assault to re-take the city from ISIS. Shiite militia are fighting alongside Iraqi soldiers, and the US is conducting bombing raids — while keeping its distance from what's happening on the ground. Liz Sly, Middle East correspondent for the Washington Post, has an update.
