"Islamic State" has lost much of its Syrian territory, including its former de-facto capital, Raqqa. But it has left a trail of horror in its wake, with thousands of bodies buried in nine mass graves across the city.
Families of former "Islamic State" (IS) militants are stranded in Syrian detention camps. The Belgian government wants to keep them there, but as Teri Schultz reports, a Belgian court has ruled that's not acceptable.
Two US soldiers, a Pentagon civilian and a military contractor have been killed in a bomb blast in Manbij, Syria. Speaking after the attack, US Vice President Mike Pence said the "Islamic State" "has been defeated."
The blast reportedly hit near an intelligence office in Damascus. Separately, Syrian officials say they repelled Israeli missiles near Damascus' airport, while Israel says it intercepted a rocket in Golan Heights.
The group of eight fighters included a German and a 16-year-old American. The US-backed Kurds are battling a last pocket of Islamist militants in eastern Syria.
