The Syrian war has entered its fourth year.

And it’s showing no signs of ending. The United Nations, which gave up tracking how many have been killed, says the number of children impacted by the civil war has doubled since last year to 5.5 million

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is based in London, says more than 146,000 have been killed so far. More than 9 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian assistance.

When the Syrian death toll first hit 93,000, we produced three visuals to help you grasp the magnitude of the number.

This is an updated graphic.

We will also be keeping track of the Syrian conflict here.
