Vad händer i april?
Vad händer i maj?
Hur många döda, på bägge sidor? Hur många på flykt?
Almost half (44%) of all violent civilian deaths after the initial invasion phase occurred in the just-ended fourth year of the conflict,
mortar attacks that kill civilians have quadrupled in the last year (from 73 to 289),
massive bomb blasts that kill more than 50 people have nearly doubled in the last year (from 9 to 17),
fatal suicide bombs, car bombs, and roadside bombing attacks have doubled in the last year (from 712 to 1476)
one in 160 of Baghdad’s 6.5 million population has been violently killed since the beginning of the war representing 64% of deaths recorded so far.
These are the stark headlines derived from Iraq Body Count’s ongoing compilation and analysis of media reports of civilian casualties in the Iraq conflict, which has documented 65,000 violent deaths to date.
