1,370 Killed in Iraq in October, Worst Since 2007

 Violence continues to rise month-over-month in Iraq, with the latest figures from’s Margaret Griffis showing 1,370 killed in October, another increase over the 1,271 reported killed in September.
Both tolls were higher than the “official” UN tolls, which for each month were exactly 979, though UN figures are usually quite a bit lower than media reported deaths and don’t include slain insurgents.

The figure is the deadliest October since 2007, during the US military’s surge in Iraq, and in keeping with the continually rising figures throughout this summer, which have brought many Iraqis to the realization that the sectarian civil war thought over has come roaring back.
