Iraqi monthly military/police fatalities: 149. April was 201, March was 193, and May 2005 was 259. Total dead: 4751.

Iraqi monthly civilian fatalities: 979. April was 809, March was 901, and May 2005 was 572. Total since March 2005: 9817. Note that the civilian numbers may be less accurate than others, but could still be useful in determining trends.

Comments: There's a bad trend in recent months for civilian deaths, while US and Iraqi military deaths continue at a typical rate. Not sure what to make of this.
