Dozens of Iraqi civilians were buried alive and calling for help this weekend in the city of Mosul, where the death toll could reach 200. Iraqi soldiers say that reflects President Trump's increase in troop strength and the frequency of air strikes against the forces of ISIS. US officers say there's been no change that increases the risk to civilians. That's according to Tim Arango of the New York Times who joins us from Erbil.
