    100,000 killed since start of Syria conflict - monitoring group.

    BEIRUT | Wed Jun 26, 2013 2:50pm IST
    BEIRUT (Reuters) - More than 100,000 people have been killed since the start of the Syrian conflict in March 2011, now the longest and most violent of the recent Arab uprisings, a monitoring group said on Wednesday.
    The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is opposed to President Bashar al-Assad, said the figure included 18,000 rebel fighters and about 40,000 soldiers and pro-Assad militiamen. But the true number of combatants killed was likely double that due to both sides' secrecy in reporting casualties, it said.

    Syria crisis can be solved quickly, but only by having Russian support, if Russia supports Syria this is going to take some time.
