219 Americans injured in Iraq in past week
By The Associated Press
Of the 219 wounded in the past week, 81 were returned to duty; the 138 others were not.
The Pentagon generally reports its wounded totals each week. Fatality totals are updated daily.
The number of Americans killed and wounded has grown rapidly amid an intensifying and increasingly effective insurgency. There were more wounded over the past five months about 4,000 than in the first 13 months of the war, when there were about 3,300, according to Pentagon reports.
The number of Americans killed as of yesterday was 1,018, by the Pentagon's count. That includes three civilian employees of the Department of Defense. It does not include Army Spc. Keith M. Maupin, 20, of Batavia, Ohio, who was captured April 9. His fate has not been officially resolved.
