UN: Syria's civilian death toll well over 7,500

UNITED NATIONS - The United Nations on Tuesday said "well over 7,500 people" have been killed in Syria due to the government's 11-month crackdown on pro-democracy protesters, raising its previous estimated death toll by more than 2,000.
"There are credible reports that the death toll now often exceeds 100 civilians a day, including many women and children," UN Under-Secretary-General for political affairs Lynn Pascoe told the UN Security Council. "The total killed so far is certainly well over 7,500 people."
