Between 2003 and 2011, 461,000 people were killed as a result of the Iraq War according to a new study from four universities, including the University of Washington.

The estimate includes deaths that resulted directly from violence, as well as non-violent deaths that were war-related. The study does not include death totals for US soldiers.

Amy Hagopian was the study’s lead author. She’s associate professor of global health at the University of Washington. She talks with Steve Scher.
