Body count 

To honor the war dead and fill an information gap in US mass media, City Newspaper will run weekly lists of American/"Coalition" soldiers and Iraqi citizens killed during the ongoing occupation of Iraq.

The totals:

558 Americans, 101 "Coalition" soldiers, and approximately 10,000 Iraqi soldiers and 10,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed in Iraq since the beginning of the occupation to March 12.

American soldiers killed from March 5-12:

Specialist Edward W. Brabazon, 20, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Staff Sergeant Joe L. Dunigan, 37, Belton, Texas

Sergeant Richard S. Gottfried, 42, Lake Ozark, Missouri

Specialist Christopher K. Hill, 26, Ventura, California

Private Burt E. Hoyer, 23, Ellsworth, Texas

Captain Gussie M. Jones, 41, Louisiana

N.B.: In Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan, Philippines, the Persian Gulf, and other areas), US military deaths exceed 110, not counting "Coalition" military deaths. Estimated Afghan deaths so far: 3,700 or more civilians; thousands of military deaths.
