Five times I tried to read the full article through the link and 5 times I have to search for it because the link only goes through the general site and not directly to the article ... and 3 of those times I did not find the article because it was way too late.

Iraqi official: War dead 150,000
Dead body being brought to mortuary in Baqouba
Dozens of bodies are brought to morgues and hospitals daily
Iraq's health minister says 150,000 civilians have been killed in the war, about three times more than other previously accepted figures.

Officials say the total is based on estimates of the number of bodies brought to mortuaries and hospitals.

Casualty figures are a controversial topic, with estimates or counts ranging from 50,000 to 650,000 deaths.

No official count has ever been made public. The health ministry is run by supporters of a radical anti-US cleric.

Speaking during a visit to Vienna, Health Minister Ali al-Shamari said the figure was based on an estimate of 100 bodies being brought into government run mortuaries and hospitals every day.

In October, the UK medical journal The Lancet published a study saying nearly 655,000 Iraqis have died as a result of the war - a far higher death toll than other estimates.

The study was dismissed by President George W Bush and other US officials as not credible. It was based on cluster samples rather than body counts.

Previous officially accepted estimates held that about 50,000 had people had been killed, based on partial figures from Iraqi institutions and media reports.

The US death toll stands at more than 2,800 troops
The head of the Baghdad central mortuary said on Thursday that he was receiving up to 60 victims of violent death - from insurgent violence and sectarian strife - each day at his facility alone.

Separately, the US military says three of its personnel have been killed in two separate incidents in Iraq.

Two soldiers were hit on Thursday by a roadside bomb in western Baghdad.

In Anbar province - a focal point of Sunni Arab resistance - the Americans say a marine died on Thursday of wounds sustained in fighting.

At least 23 US troops have been killed in November. In October, at least 105 soldiers were killed, the fourth highest monthly toll since US forces overthrew Saddam Hussein, and the worst for US casualties in nearly two years.
