Nearly half a million Iraqis have died because of war in their country, a new study has suggested.

An estimated 461,000 Iraqis died between March 2003 and June 2011 as a direct or indirect result of the conflict, a new study published in journal PLOS Medicine has shown.

Most of the deaths in the study were attributable to violence but around a third occurred as a result of indirect war-related events such as failures in health care systems and collapses in crucial supply networks and sanitation.

The study found that gunshots were the cause of 62 per cent of violent deaths, car bombs accounted for 12 per cent and other explosions caused 9 per cent of deaths. Heart conditions were the lead cause of non-violent deaths, according to the findings.
