Re: [casi] Commentary on Iraq "casualties"



The BBC and most other news organisations seem to be quoting combat deaths
only since May 1, which does not include the at least as many fatalities
caused by accidents etc. But they do usually say something like " there have
been now 55 combat-related deaths in Iraq since May 1." Ghazwan's link
concurs with the CNN estimate of around 300 total (combat and non-combat)
fatalities since March 20.
