UN: thousands of Iraqi civilians continue to flee Fallujah

The United Nations says thousands of civilians continue to flee Fallujah after most of the city was declared liberated from the Islamic State (ISIS) group.

The UN said Sunday more than 80,000 civilians have fled Fallujah and its surrounding areas since the operation to retake it from ISIS was announced last month.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory for Iraq on Friday after special forces recaptured most of the city following weeks of fighting.
