Falling Deaths In Iraq

THIS might be good news:

BAGHDAD (AFP) – Iraqi civilian deaths dropped to 1,241 last month, according to figures issued on Sunday, the lowest since a US-led crackdown was launched in February in Baghdad and other violent regions of the country.

The latest numbers, compiled from interior, defence and health ministry figures and made available to AFP, indicate that 1,241 civilians died last month, compared to 1,951 in the previous month.


But June was a deadly month for the US military, which lost at least 93 soldiers to attacks across Iraq, mostly in and around Baghdad.

At least 3,570 US troops have died in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion, according to an AFP count based on Pentagon figures.
