UNAMI: 117 killed, 264 injured in Iraq in November
World  - A total of 117 Iraqi civilians were killed and another 264 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in November, according to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

The number of civilians killed in November not including police was 114, while the number of injured not including police was 264, UNAMI said in its monthly release, Iraqi News reported.

Of those figures, Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, with 201 civilian casualties 51 killed, 150 injured. Salahaddin Governorate followed, with 24 killed and 60 injured, and Kirkuk had 12 killed and 28 injured. UNAMI has not been able to obtain the civilian casualty figures from the Anbar Health Department for the month of November.

In October, UNAMI announced in its monthly release that about 114 Iraqi civilians were killed, while 244 others were wounded as a result of terrorism, violence and armed conflicts.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State extremist militants who proclaimed its "rule" in large swathes of Iraq and Syria in 2014.

The surge in violence between armed groups and government forces has resulted in over 3 million internally displaced persons across Iraq and left more than 11 million in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Iraq declared the collapse of ISIL's territorial influence in Iraq earlier in November with the recapture of Rawa, a city on Anbar's Western borders with Syria, which was the group's last bastion in Iraq.
