Although international interest in Iraq was very high last decade, it has waned in the past couple years. Nevertheless, the violence has increased dramatically since Sunni protests in April against a Shiite-led government. The number killed daily in Iraq is startling.
I was recording Iraq daily death totals drawn from news reports here in 2013, but discovered later that I was duplicating (or rather, incompetently aping) the work going on at Iraq Body Count. They’re doing a more comprehensive job, so I refer interested readers to them.
