Researchers estimate that 5.4 million people died from 1955 to 2002 as a result of wars in 13 countries. Data from new studies suggests that 378,000 people worldwide died from a war-related death each year between 1985 and 1994, the medical journal The Lancet reported in 2006 that an estimated 650,000 Iraqi civilians had been killed by that time since the start of the war.
