Chilcot report: 4 charts that show the scale of the Iraq war


The long-awaited Chilcot report into the Iraq war will finally be published tomorrow morning.

Set up in 2009, the Iraq Inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the invasion of Iraq in 2003 has taken seven years to produce - set back by long delays, angry disputes and the 2.6 million-word length of it.

It's expected to be released online on Wednesday 6 July as soon as Sir John Chilcot finishes his statement - so before that, here's four charts that highlight the shocking scale of the war this report is all about.
