Revised Death Count

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has stated that over 150,000 civilians have been killed since the United States and Britain invaded Iraq almost five years ago.

The WHO says the figure is an estimate based on interviews with families, they caution that the actual number of civilian deaths could be as high as 223,000.

Violence is now the leading cause of death among adult male Iraqis.

A previous study by Johns Hopkins University stated that 600,000 Iraqi civilians may have been killed in violent incidents between the start of the US/British invasion and July 2006.
