Mustafa flees Fallujah: PBS News Hour Report

PBS / News Hour reports that displaced residents of Fallujah are finding little to celebrate after Iraqi forces finally ousted Islamic State fighters this week. The city is empty — tens of thousands who were held by ISIS as human shields fled to desolate camps — and there is no electricity or water. Refugee workers call the situation a “catastrophe” and are hoping for more aid. Special correspondent Jane Arraf reports. One of those refugees is Mustafa Abed, a boy NMV brought to Portland, Oregon in 2008, where he was treated for severe injuries sustained in a November 2004 US-missile strike on Fallujah. He appears at minute 7:59 in this report. We were overjoyed to see that he is still alive, and looking strong and healthy.
