Le Monde reflected on official UK and French numbers of killed combatants as well as on civcas, and contrasted those with the Airwars study –  zooming in to two alleged incidents involving France.

Also in France, BFM TV discussed numbers of killed combatants as well as civilians in French actions, addressed the state of public reporting in France and spoke of “eloquent numbers from Airwars.

Scoop (NZ) focused on the Danish withdrawal and discussed several Airwars reports in detail.

Phapluat (Vietnam) summarized the main findings of the report.

Trouw (the Netherlands) has published a long article with main focus on (the lack of) Dutch accountability and the big gap between military and public civilian casualty reporting

De Morgen (Belgium) published a shorter article, with a focus on the lack of transparency in Belgium, placing it in the context of the recent Russian accusation that Belgium had killed six civilians.

11.11.11 (NGO, Belgium) praised the report and spoke critically about the need for more transparency in Belgium. It followed with their own recommendations to the federal parliament and government.

Associated Press put out an article internationally, stating the main findings of the report and updating on Mosul (e.g. in New York Times – and many others in the US/Canada, in Spanish by 20minutos and French by Métro Montréal)

Just Security wrote an article with an overview of the report’s recommendations, mainly addressing the question how the US can improve its civilian casualty reporting.

AntiWar also wrote a short article with US-focus, using the Manbij 18 July 2016 incident as an example.
