The civilian death toll in Iraq fell to its lowest level in recent memory on Saturday.


Only four people were killed or found dead nationwide, according to reports in the capital Baghdad compiled from police, morgue officials and witnesses.

The day marked the beginning of the Eid al-Fitr feast for Shiites, the three-day end to the Ramadan month of fasting.

Sunnis began celebrating the holiday on Sunday.

The daily number of civilians killed, not including those on days when there were massive casualties from car bombs, had climbed above 100 at the end of last year and the beginning of the year.

The day’s decline in deaths was in line with a sharp drop in September of both Iraqi civilian and US military fatalities.

The four dead included three death squad victims found in Baghdad and the bodyguard of the Kirkuk police commander who was killed in a roadside bombing.
