Total deaths over the course of the conflict in Syria (18 March 2011 – 1 March 2013) Estimates of deaths in the conflict vary widely, with figures, per opposition activist groups, ranging from 68,440 to 82,130.[35][36][80] On 2 January 2013, the United Nations stated that 60,000 had been killed since the civil war began, with U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay saying "The number of casualties is much higher than we expected, and is truly shocking."[79] The following month, the U.N. updated its death toll estimate to 70,000.[54] Some areas of the country have been affected disproportionately by the war; by some estimates, as many as a third of all deaths have occurred in the city of Homs
