INDEPTH: IRAQ
Casualties in the Iraq war

CBC News Online | April 6, 2004

Casualty numbers are likely higher because only confirmed deaths are included. Non-combat deaths include accidents, friendly fire incidents, suicides and incidents unrelated to fighting.

The Pentagon stopped issuing figures for non-hostile injuries to U.S. Forces on April 1, 2004. It also began issuing reports of wounded once a week, rather than daily, on that date.

U.S.
Combat deaths: 429 (314)
Total wounded: 2,998
Non-combat deaths: 191 (168)
Total injured (until Apr. 1, 2004): 441

/snip/

During "major combat" (prior to May 1)
Military Deaths: 4,895 to 6,370***
Taken prisoner: 7,300* (as of April 15, 2003)
Iraqis wounded: 5,103**

/snip/

Troops in Iraq

There are currently 130,000 troops in Iraq. The plan is to cut that to 105,000 next year. The United Kingdom has at least 10,000 soldiers in Iraq, and plans to send another 1,200. The U.S. says these countries also have troops there: Turkey, Australia, Poland, Japan, Spain, South Korea, France, Philippines, Germany, Thailand, Ukraine, Bangladesh, Italy, Pakistan, Portugal, India and Russia.

1. Also worth noting CC - If a troop dies after being sent to a German
hospital or dies back in the States, they don't count them.
