City-by-city chart of the number of reported killed since March 2011.
|The United Nations has estimated that more than 5,000 people have been killed in Syria since anti-government protests began in March 2011. The Syrian government has said more than 2,000 soldiers and security forces have died at the hands of ”armed terrorist groups” during the same period.
Al Jazeera has compiled data, broken down by city, on the number of dead from three anti-government groups: the Syrian Revolution Co-ordination Union, Local Co-ordination Committees and the United Kingdom-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Strict media restrictions have made it impossible to independently verify the exact number of killed.
These figures were last updated January 5, 2012.
