Mapping Death Trend


The Guardian plotted every death in Iraq on a map through data from the Wikileaks Iraq war logs.

Wikileaks released almost 400,000 classified US documents about the Iraq war. The war logs suggest evidence of torture was ignored, and detail the deaths of thousands of Iraqi civilians. The logs show there were more than 109,000 violent deaths between 2004 and the end of 2009. They included 66,081 civilians, 23,984 people classed as enemy, 15,196 members of the Iraqi security forces and 3,771 coalition troops.
