The death toll from violence in Iraq fell in February from the previous month, but was still one of the worst in years, figures released on Saturday showed.Government figures put the toll at 790 civilians and security personnel killed, while the United Nations said 703 people died in violence.However, the UN excluded violence in the mostly-Sunni province of Anbar where government forces have clashed with militants who still hold one city.More than 370,000 people may have been displaced by violence in Anbar, according to the UN, which quoted the provincial health committee as saying 298 civilians were killed in February.
