At least 1,900 killed since start of Syria talks – Group


The dead persons include 498 civilians
At least 1,900 people have been killed in Syria since the peace talks opened in Switzerland more than a week ago, a pro-opposition watchdog has said.

“The toll covers the period from Jan. 22 until midnight of Jan.30,” Rami Abdel-Rahman, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said in a statement.

The dead included 498 civilians killed by airstrikes, shelling and sniper fire.

Some 72 more people have died from starvation due to the regime’s siege of rebel-held areas in the outskirts of the capital, Damascus, according to the Britain-based observatory.
