UNITED NATIONS (AP) — U.N. political chief B. Lynn Pascoe says "well over" 7,500 people have died in Syria violence.

The U.N. Undersecretary-General told the Security Council on Tuesday that both the Syrian government and the international community have failed to stop 11 months of carnage that began with a government crackdown on civilian protests.

Pascoe says he cannot give exact casualty numbers, but says there are "credible" reports that more than 100 civilians are dying in the country daily.
