The civilian death toll in Iraq
fell to its lowest level in recent memory Saturday, with only four
people killed or found dead nationwide, according to reports from
police, morgue officials and credible witnesses.
The daily number of civilians killed, not including those on days
when there were massive casualties from car bombs, had climbed above
100 at the end of last year and the beginning of 2007.
Saturday's decline in deaths was in line with a sharp drop in September of both Iraqi civilian and U.S. military fatalities.
Too early to tell. Could be Ramadan affecting things, but goddamn if this isn;t an encouraging sign!
