Iraq: Deaths

Volume 700: debated on Thursday 20 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their estimate of the number of people who died in the conflict in Iraq in February 2008. [HL2447]

The security situation in Iraq has improved recently but deaths by violent means continue to be difficult to gauge accurately or reliably. Estimates, drawn up by a variety of organisations, vary greatly. The Government's view remains that records of civilian deaths are best monitored by the Iraqi Government.
