In the first official statistics on Lebanon's civil war, police said Monday that more than 144,000 people were killed and nearly 200,000 were wounded from 1975 to 1990.

The report of the 15-year conflict excluded 6,630 people killed and about 8,000 wounded in related conflicts involving Palestinians.

The report said 17,415 people remain missing, including 13,968 Lebanese kidnaped by Christian and Muslim militias. Most are presumed dead, it said.
