Underscoring just how dangerous Iraq has become, a United Nations official reported today that 34,452 Iraqi civilians were killed — about 94 a day — and more than 36,000 wounded in sectarian killings in 2006.
More than 89 Iraqi civilians were slaughtered today in a series of bombings and shootings in Baghdad.
The numbers are a sobering reminder of the soaring level of violence a U.S. troop surge will try to counter in coming months.
