The United Nations says at least 733 Iraqis have died during violence in January, excluding casualties from an embattled western province.
The figures issued Saturday by the UN's mission to Iraq show 618 civilians and 115 members of the security forces were killed in January. But the UN statement left out deaths from ongoing fighting in Anbar, due to problems in verifying "the status of those killed." The figures also leave out insurgent deaths. (AP)
