Washington: The three-year war in Syria has claimed 162,402 lives, including children, an opposition group has said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the dead included 8,607 children, and civilians, defected soldiers, military members and foreign fighters, among others.

According to CNN, United Nations officials said they stopped updating their death toll in July due to lack of access and the inability to verify information from sources.
