KHAZER, Iraq (AP) — In a story Oct. 23 about Iraq's Mosul offensive, The Associated Press reported erroneously that a UNICEF team had visited a refugee camp near Mosul and found poor conditions there. The people the UNICEF team visited were residents of the area, which had recently been retaken from the Islamic State group.
A small Belgian region refused Monday to bow to growing pressure to back a key trade deal with Canada, heightening tensions within Belgium and Europe as well as with historic allies in North America.

Its opposition prevents the federal Belgian government from signing the accord, which needs to be backed by all 28 European Union member states.
