More than a quarter of a million people have been killed in Syria’s brutal conflict since it began with anti-government protests over four years ago, a monitoring group said Friday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it has documented the deaths of 250,124 people, including at least 74,426 civilians.

The civilian toll includes 12,517 children and 8,062 women.

Compiled by the British-based Observatory, which relies on a network of sources on the ground in Syria, the toll is an increase from the 240,000 figure it announced in August.

It puts the toll for rebel fighters at 43,752, and the number of foreign militants killed at 37,010.
