Monitors say nearly 10,000 dead in Syrian uprising

Damascus , Wed, 28 Mar 2012 ANI

Damascus, Mar 28 (ANI): Around 10,000 people have been killed in Syria since the beginning of uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's rule, a UK-based human rights organization has claimed.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that a total 9,734 people have died, including 7,056 civilians, News24 reports.

The group noted that the remaining casualties were soldiers and rebel troops.

The death toll in the Islamic country is rising daily as regime forces press a crackdown against pro-democracy protestors.

Earlier this month, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that well over 8,000 people have died in Syria over the past year.

"Well over 8,000 are dead as a result of the government's decision to choose violent repression over peaceful political dialogue and genuine change," Ban said. (ANI)
