More than 100,000 people have been killed in
Syria's civil war, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Thursday.
"The situation in Syria is appalling," Ban said, after meeting US Secretary of State John Kerry in New York, and called for efforts to find a political solution to stop the conflict.
"The conflict has killed more than 100,000 people and displaced millions of people and we have to bring it to an end," Ban said. The latest recent UN estimate of the death toll was 93,000.
Both Ban and Kerry, who spoke to reporters, called for convening a second conference in Geneva as soon as possible to implement a political plan to end the conflict.
