How a Dutch Bomb killed 70 people in Iraq

In this episode of the daily podcast hosted by the Dutch newspaper NRC, Thomas Rueb interviews journalists Kees Versteeg and Jannie Schippers about their investigation into an airstrike conducted in Hawija, Iraq by the international coalition in 2015 that caused up to 70 civilians casualties. The journalists describe how their investigation led them to Hawija, how they could finally demonstrate that it was a Dutch F-16 that conducted the strike, and what implications this has.
