As the civil war in Syria rages on, the United Nations' human rights office now says almost 93,000 people have died in the conflict. A new analysis of the Syrian death toll documented 92,901 killings between March 2011 and the end of April 2013. But the U.N.'s top human rights official, Navi Pillay, says it is impossible to provide an exact current figure, which may be far higher. Among the victims are at least 6,561 children, including 1,729 children younger than 10.
