Subject: RELIABLE "DEATH COUNTS" FROM THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN: FROM
6 June 2003
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Mr. Marc W. Herold, Professor of Economics and Women's Studies at the
University of New Hampshire, has provided us with a copy of his most
comprehensive study ofthe killing fields during America's attack of
Afghanistan. (Please see the attachment).

Dear Mr. Feeley:
I wish I had gotten your report earlier. The data (that you requested)
available at my site :
A summary Table may be found on page 2.
Please note that these are only "impact deaths." For every death
at point of
impact, about 1.8 other civilians were injured, many of whom died later.
Steele's data is quite correct but it refers to "extra" deaths in refugee camps
caused by shortfalls of vital supplies due to US bombing.
Hope this helps.
