151,000 dead in Iraq war

Around 151,000 Iraqi civilians were killed in the three years following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, according to a World Health Organisation report.

The study draws on an Iraqi Health Ministry survey of nearly 10,000 households.

It is considered the most comprehensive study of civilian and other deaths since the war in Iraq started in 2003.
