An airstrike by a U.S.-led coalition flattened an entire neighborhood of a northern Iraqi town controlled by ISIS, killing dozens of people including civilians, witnesses and security sources said.The strike targeted an ISIS bomb-making factory in Hawija overnight Tuesday, triggering a series of secondary explosions that reduced the surrounding area in the industrial district to rubble. The coalition says it has killed 10,000 ISIS militants across Iraq and Syria since launching airstrikes against the group after it overran around one third of Iraq.A security official in Kirkuk, Lt. Ibrahim Jawdat, said initial intelligence reports from sources inside Hawija suggested at least 74 people were killed, among them civilians.
