Unfortunately, the Iraqi War Death Count Actually Higher

leave a comment »

A new study says the US-led war in Iraq killed over 400,000 people, with conflict-driven migration claiming 55,000 more lives. Amy Hagopian, one of the authors of the report, tells RT why the actual death toll is likely much higher than the estimate.

  The study, a collaborative effort between researchers in the US,  Canada and Iraq, was recently published in the journal PLoS Medicine.  
  The researchers, employing the most scientifically rigorous  methodology to date, determined that 460,800 people had died  through either direct or indirect causes stemming from the 2003  invasion and subsequent occupation which officially ended in  December 2011. An estimated 55,800 more deaths were projected to  have been caused by the extensive migration in and immigration  from Iraq as a result of the decade-long conflict.
