UN human rights chief says More than 191 thousand people have been killed in the Syrian conflict up to April.

Navi Pillay said the figure was "probably an underestimate" and criticised what she called "international paralysis" on the issue.

The figure is more than double the UN estimate given a year ago.

Opposition groups in Syria have been fighting President Bashar al-Assad for over three years, but have lost ground in recent months.

The highest number of killings was recorded in Damascus province, with 39,393 deaths, followed by Aleppo, with 31,932.
