British Casualties in Iraq - Updates for May 2008

Updates of casualty data for May 2008 have now been published by the casualty monitor project for British forces in Iraq. Figures show a continued fall in casualty numbers during this period with no reported fatalities or serious injuries for the second month in a row. British casualties in Iraq are now running at a significantly lower rate than for forces in Afghanistan. A projection for the rest of 2008 suggests that annual UK casualties in Iraq may be the lowest since the war began.
