GENEVA, August 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Over 191,000 people have been killed in Syria’s civil war between March 2011 and the end of April 2014, the UN Human Rights Office said in an updated analysis on Friday.
“With additional killings reported from earlier periods, in addition to the new killings that have taken place, the total is more than double the number documented a year ago,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said.
“Nevertheless, as the report explains, tragically it is probably an underestimate of the real total number of people killed during the first three years of this murderous conflict,” she said.
The analysis was prepared using data from five sources, including human rights organizations and the Syrian government. The latter, however, stopped providing such information in March 2012.
