UN: Iraq deaths drop to 1,700 in July

BAGHDAD (AP) - The United Nations says there's been a dramatic decline in the number of deaths in Iraq.

Officials say 1,737 people, mostly civilians, were killed in Iraq in July.

In June, some 2,400 people were killed as Sunni militants swept across large parts of the country, capturing the second largest city Mosul.
