Syria: 'Bloody March' Marks Record High Killings

Ad Feedback

Last month marked the deadliest month in Syria since protests against President Bashar al-Assad's regime began two years ago.

More than 6,000 people were killed in what is being called "Bloody March." A third of those victims were civilians according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Those killed include 291 women, nearly 300 children, and more than 1,400 rebel fighters.

The United Nations reports that 70,000 people have died since protests began against Assad's regime.

"We estimate it is actually around 120,000 people," Rami Abdelrahman, head of the Observatory, told Reuters.

Efforts by foreign media and independent human rights organizations within the country have been curtailed, making the verification of casualty figures virtually impossible.
