60,000 Dead in Syria {Cartoon}

The overall death toll in devastated Syria has surpassed an estimated 60,000 people, the United Nations said Wednesday, a dramatic figure that could skyrocket as the civil war persists.

It’s “truly shocking” and shameful, said U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, who blamed the international community for inaction.

“Collectively we have fiddled at the edges while Syria burns,” she said. “While many details remain unclear, there can be no justification for the massive scale of the killing highlighted by this analysis.” (Source: CNN)
