Some 3,700 people have fled Falluja over the past week since the Iraqi army began its offensive on the city controlled by Islamic State, the United Nations refugee agency said on Tuesday. "We have reports of casualties among people in the city center in Falluja due to heavy shelling, including 7 members of one family on the 28th of May. We also have several reports of people being used as human shields by ISIL (Islamic State)," UNHCR spokesman William Spindler told a news briefing.
