More than 93,000 people, including at least 6,500 children, have perished in Syria's brutal civil war, a new study from the United Nations human rights office showed on Thursday.

"Unfortunately, as the study indicates, this is most likely a minimum casualty figure. The true number of those killed is potentially much higher," UN rights chief Navi Pillay said in a statement.
