WASHINGTON — The White House on Tuesday distanced itself from the figure of 30,000 Iraqis killed in the war, blaming terrorists for "a significant number" of the dead and saying the figure is not official.

President George W Bush on Monday had offered up that number during an impromptu question and answer session after a speech aimed at shoring up U.S. public support for his strategy.
