Nearly 19,000 civilians were killed in Iraq between January 2014 and October 2015 -- a toll the United Nations calls "staggering" in a new report.
The numbers are mind-boggling. In the 21-month period: • At least 18,802 civilians were killed, about half of them in Baghdad alone. • Another 36,245 were wounded. • About 3.2 million people were internally displaced, including a million school-aged children. ‎- blue
