Page 25 News?

AP story from the twenty-fifth page of your Chicago Sun-Times:-- next to a story about "every gadget fan's nightmare":
The United Nations said Tuesday that more than 34,000 Iraqi civilians were killed in sectarian violence last year, nearly three times the number reported dead by the Iraqi government.

Underscoring the peril faced by Iraqis, 142 were killed or found dead Tuesday.

Gianni Magazzeni, the chief of the U.N. Assistance Mission for Iraq, said 34,452 civilians were killed and 36,685 were wounded last year.

Your Chicago Tribune put the Iraqi civilian death toll in the fifth paragraph of its page one story.
