      One million Iraqis killed after Yankee invasion
      - According to British NGO

      LONDON, Jan. 30.-- More than one million Iraqis have been killed as a result
      of the violence that broke out in the country after the U.S. invasion in
      2003, according to the statistics of a British non-governmental
      organization, ANSA reported.

      The NGO, Opinion Research Business, interviewed more than 2,400 adults in
      Iraq, and 20% of them said at least one relative had been killed as a result
      of the conflict.

      The NGO also reported that the last Iraqi census, carried out in 1997,
      showed 4,050,000 households in the country. Based on that figure, Opinion
      Research Business estimated that approximately 1,030,000 people were killed
      as a result of the war.

      The study was done between August and September of 2007 in 15 of Iraq's 18
      provinces, but the report on its results was just released. It revealed that
      the number of deaths ranged between 946,258 and 1,120,000 people.
