More than 80,000 people have been killed in Syria's conflict since it erupted more than two years ago, a monitoring group said on Sunday.
Nearly half of those who have died were civilians, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The Britain-based watchdog said it has documented the killing of around 82,257 people, including 34,473 civilians -- among them 4,788 children and 3,049 women.
It has also recorded the deaths of 16,687 rebels, including defected military personnel.
