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.

The totals:

928 American soldiers, 124 Coalition soldiers, and approximately 11,487 to 13,458 Iraqi civilians have been killed in Iraq from the beginning of the war and occupation to Aug 10. More than 5,804 American soldiers have been wounded in action, while an estimated 11,000 have become ill or been injured in "non-combat" incidents.
