As the Syria crisis spirals, the last remaining international support for President Assad appears to be melting away.
Exactly how bad have things got? The United Nations reports over 8,700 deaths by the end of February in the updated infographic above – available from Reliefweb – which covers deaths by region.
The worst-hit province has been Homs, scene of escalating violence.
We have also made our own attempts to map and list the dead and arrested – which we will update over time.
