To honor the war dead and fill an information gap in US mass media, City Newspaper will run weekly lists of American soldiers and Iraqi civilians killed during the occupation of Iraq.
1,354 American soldiers, 160 Coalition soldiers, and approximately 15,229 to 17,443 Iraqicivilians have been killed in Iraq (a recent survey published by Lancet medical journal estimates as many as 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed), and 5,396 American soldiers have been wounded, from the beginning of the war and occupation to January 11.
An Army study found about one in six soldiers in Iraq report symptoms of depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder; some experts predict that over 100,000 soldiers may eventually require mental health treatment.
