    Iraq KIA count hits 1,000
    -----------------------------------------------------

    Big News Network.com Wednesday 8th December, 2004

    At least 1,000 American troops have been killed in combat since the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, the Pentagon reports.

    The vast majority died after President Bush declared an end to major combat operations May 1, 2003. Of the total, 109 were killed during the invasion, and more than 887 troops have been killed in hostile action with insurgent forces in Iraq. Three Defense Department civilians have been killed. Another 275 have been killed in non-combat incidents, most of them accidents, according to the Defense Department. There have been at least seven homicides and 29 suicides.

    November was the bloodiest month so far in Iraq with 135 American troops dead.

    More than 9,765 troops have been wounded in action. Some 4,564 were only slightly wounded and returned to duty within three days.
