An additional 158 fatalities were scattered among many small villages and towns and cities.
In Basra, Iraq's second biggest city, hospitals issued 413 death certificates and officials estimated 85 percent were for civilians, but the hospitals did not keep daily records listing civilian or military status of casualties. The AP did not include any Basra deaths in its count.
