UN Cites Record-High Monthly Death Toll for Iraqi Civilians

Hosted by

In Baghdad, the United Nations announced today that 3709 Iraqi civilians were killed in October. It's the highest monthly toll since the US-led invasion in March, 2003. It's also far higher than the count of nearly 2900 American soldiers killed during the entire conflict. The news comes just a week before President Bush is scheduled to meet with Iraq's Prime Minister in Jordan to discuss speeding up the transfer of security control to Iraq.
