NPR's Tom Gjelten reports that the combined number of Iraqi soldiers and civilians killed during the U.S. attack on Iraq is estimated to be higher than in the 1991 Gulf War. One intelligence estimate puts the number of Iraqi regular and paramilitary forces killed at 10,000 — much higher than in the 1991 war. The number of civilians killed is estimated to be between 2,000 and 2,500, about a thousand fewer than in the earlier war.
