Iraqis recount human cost of war

Cost of US invasion leaves deep scars as nation reels from years of war and occupation.

    More than 4,000 US soldiers were killed and tens of thousands more injured after nearly nine years of war in Iraq. But the number of Iraqi civilians killed in the conflict is much higher.

    There are no official statistics – but according to the latest estimates, more than a hundred thousand innocent Iraqis were killed during and after the US-led invasion of 2003. Some estimates even put that number at a million.
