The number of U.S. servicemen killed in January by improvised-explosive devices in Iraq fell to its lowest monthly total since March, according to Pentagon data compiled by the Iraq Coalition Casualty Count.

Twenty-four servicemen were killed by such explosives in January, compared to 57 in October, 40 in November and 42 in December. The proportion of total deaths by improvised explosives relative to all causes is also declining: nearly 2-in-5 casualties in January compared to 3-in-5 in December.
