More than 60,000 people have been killed in Syria since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's regime erupted in March 2011, a top UN official said.

Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that an exhaustive analysis carried out by data specialists showed that 59,648 people had died through the end of November.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Rupert Colville, spokesman for Pillay, said the death toll could be much higher.

"What we have done is take the statistical analysis of seven of the lists of casualties that exist, analyse them all and remove all the double counting," he said.

"But the criteria are quite strict. There has to be a set amount of information and there may well be people who have been killed who aren't included as a result of that."

A petrol station was hit in an airstrike outside of Damascus on Wednesday, killing dozens.

This raises the death toll of the Syrian conflict to more than 60,000 which the United Nations say the toll reached last November.

the death toll in Iraq still carry's on today yet don't get reported the same as Libya , that's because Syria is the latest so called popular uprising and need western attention ,while forgetting the killings still going on in other interfered country's, a popular uprising funded and encouraged by western powers
