Fallujah's toll

As the US military gears up for its (final?) assault on Fallujah, the Iraq Body Count project has published an exhaustive study of the casualties inflicted from the devastating military incursion there back in April.

The IBC's survey concludes "that betweeen 572 and 616 of the approximately 800 reported deaths were of civilians, with over 300 of these being women and children."
