BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq's state TV says a government airstrike in the militant-held northern city of Mosul killed 60 fighters from the extremists Islamic state group.

The strike Wednesday at dawn reportedly targeted a prison in downtown Mosul used by the Islamic state as a religious court and detention facility.
About 300 people who were in the militants' custody were set free.

The report cited intelligence officials but provided no further information.
