During September at least 104 people were killed across Iraq,
and 114 more were wounded. A mass grave also gave up 21 victims. The toll from August
was 102 dead and 134 wounded.

At least 29 civilians, 34 security members, and 33 militants
were killed. Another 43 civilians, 67 security personnel, and three militants
were wounded. One U.N. doctor was murdered, but it is unclear if this is a
war-related crime.

Authorities found 21 bodies in a mass grave and determined the victims were Kuwaitis
killed during the 1990-91 Gulf War.

In the conflict between Turkey and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party
(P.K.K.) guerrillas, at least seven were killed and one was wounded. Of those
deaths, four were guerrillas and three were Turkish soldiers. A Turkish soldier
was wounded. Only casualties that occurred in northern Iraq are counted here.

At least two people were killed, and seven were wounded in
the latest violence:

A roadside bomb in Jazira killed
a brigadier general
, Mu’tasim Al-Qaisi. Three
other servicemembers were wounded
.

Three
militiamen were wounded
in a blast in Jurf al-Nasr.

In Kirkuk, one militant was
killed and another was wounded
during a security operation.

Also, six rockets were launched towards U.S. troops
based near Erbil International Airport. No
casualties were reported
.
