They said the bodies of the 16, killed overnight and early on Saturday, have been brought to military hospitals in eastern Mosul, AP reports.

An Associated Press team in eastern Mosul on Saturday says scores of civilians are continuing to stream out of the inner neighborhoods of the city to escape ISIS attack, making their way to camps for the displaced.

The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, says at least 73,000 Iraqis have fled Mosul since the government's campaign to retake the city began on Oct. 17.
