U.S. Airstrike Killed More than 100 Iraqi Civilians, Pentagon Says

The Pentagon says a U.S. airstrike killed more than 100 Iraqi civilians in Mosul in March.

U.S. investigators say at the time of the bombing, coalition forces were fighting against two ISIS snipers posted on the rooftop of a building. The bomb detonated in the second floor of the structure where ISIS fighters had planted explosives. An explosion triggered by the airstrike caused the structure to crumble, killing the two ISIS snipers and 101 civilians in the bottom floors of the structure. Four other civilians were killed in a neighboring structure.

U.S. coalition forces were not aware of the civilians or explosives in the building prior to the airstrike.

Republican Health Bill Would Leave 23 Million More Americans Uninsured, C.B.O. Says

The House Republican health care bill passed last month would leave 23 million more Americans uninsured in 2026, according to a report released by the Congressional Budget Office. The report goes on to say an estimated 51 million people under the age of 65 will be uninsured. The C.B.O says a few million of those uninsured Americans would use tax credits to buy insurance policies that wouldn't cover major medical risks.

The C.B.O report does say the bill would reduce the federal deficit by $119 billion over a decade. The C.B.O is a nonpartisan agency that analyzes budget and economic information for Congress.

Eating Chocolate May Lower Risk of Heart Condition

Want an excuse to indulge in some chocolate? A new study finds regularly eating a moderate amount of chocolate can lower your risk of developing an irregular heartbeat.

Published in the journal Heart, the study says while there has been extensive research showing the cardiovascular benefits of consuming chocolate, there hasn’t been much done on chocolate and atrial fibrillation, which is linked to a higher risk of stroke and heart failure.

Researchers found a-fib is 10 percent lower for people who ate 1 to 3 servings per month, 20 percent lower for people who ate 2 to 6 servings per week and 16 percent lower for people who ate one or more servings per day. A serving of chocolate in the study was equal to an ounce.

The study didn’t differentiate between dark or milk chocolate.
