The US military says its war planes have dropped 40,000 pounds of bombs on al Qaeda targets on the southern outskirts of Baghdad. The attack was part of Operation Phantom Phoenix, a nationwide offensive against al Qaeda fighters. A new World Health Organisation study claims around 151,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed in the three years following the US-led invasion.
