BBC News - Iraq: US troops' first fatality-free month since 2003: "August was the first month since the US-led invasion in 2003 that no US soldiers were killed in Iraq.
An independent group, icasualties.org, has displayed the statistics for August on its website, which tracks US fatalities in Iraq every month.
US Col Douglas Crissman said it showed how far Iraqi security forces had come.
Figures for Iraqi civilian and security forces deaths in August are not yet available, but the month has seen major attacks with substantial loss of life."
