British Casualty Monitor Update: 20.07.2007

The latest casualty data from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was made available by the MOD earlier this week. These cover the period up to June 30th. The data has now been analysed and added to the tracking graphs available on the Monitor pages for Iraq and Afghanistan.

Also, this morning comes the news of 3 more British fatalities, caused by a mortor attack on the airbase in Basra. This incident forms part of a pattern of steadily escalating combat casualties, the monthly moving average in Iraq now standing at 42.
