I make the Baghdad calculation 1.9 per cent.

Certainly closer to the study's 2.5 per cent.


You are correct, Simon. I erroneously put 57 million in for Baghdad's pop. My calculator's Zero is apparently more sensitive than I give it credit for.

I'm still intrigued however, where all the other 500 people are being killed each day? One ever 2.4 minutes. Jeeze, that's not a nice figure.


p.s. why does the subject heading appear to be partially in Spanish?
