Mortality in post-invasion Iraq

New section on mortality estimates in Iraq

On 12 October 2006, a study of mortality developments in Iraq was published in British medical journal The Lancet. This found that between 393,000 and 943,000 excess deaths have occured in the 2003 invasion and its aftermath, with 655 thousand the most likely estimate. We have added a new section of 'Frequently Asked Questions' on the study and mortality estimates in Iraq more generally.
