Over 800 Iraqis killed in November, says UN mission

United Nations, Dec 2 (IANS) A total of 888 Iraqis were killed and 1,237 others wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in November, a UN spokesman said here on Tuesday.

“That toll includes nearly 500 civilians killed,” Xinhua quoted UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric as saying, who cited the figure released by the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI).

Jan Kubis, the UN secretary-general’s special representative for Iraq, said on Tuesday that the Iraqi people continue to suffer from the vicious circle of violence.

Kubis said that the United Nations deplores acts of terrorism and armed conflict in Iraq that lead to continued losses of life.

Meanwhile, the World Food Programme (WFP) distributed urgently needed food assistance on Tuesday, provided by the government of Iraq, to nearly 70,000 people in the besieged cities of Haditha and Al Baghdadi in the central governorate of Anbar, Dujarric said.
