Iraqi Death Toll Exceeds 600,000, Study Estimates

`A new study asserts that roughly 600,000 Iraqis have died from violence since the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003, a figure many times higher than any previous estimate.

[..] President Bush in December said “30,000, more or less” had died in Iraq during the invasion and in the violence since. [..]

This study, “The Human Cost of the War in Iraq,” puts civilian fatalities at 426,369 to 793,663, with a 95% certainty that the figure falls in that range, and the highest probability given to the figure of 601,027.’
