Good news from Iraq. Remember the war we're fighting over there? The one that was barely mentioned during the last part of the campaign? Well, here's one reason why: Fatalities are way, way down.
The number of civilians killed by violence in Iraq has fallen by two-thirds in 2008, researchers say.
Official Iraqi figures say 5,714 people were killed in 2008 compared to 16,252 the previous year.
The non-governmental organisation Iraq Body Count also said the number of deaths was down by two-thirds, but put the figure between 8,315 and 9,028.
US military casualties fell from 900 in 2007 to just over 300 according to the independent website icasualties.org.
