[Guest blog post by Syria Tracker]
Since its launch on April, 23, 2011, Syria Tracker has been able to log 824 aggregate or individual reports documenting > 1,000 individuals killed since mid March 2011. These reports are being verified by a group of volunteers from the Stand By Taskforce and the Ushahidi team which cross-validate information against other sources or posts and provide technical and program assistance to help us achieve our mission.
To-date Syria Tracker has been visited by 1,384 absolute unique visitors contributing to 6,435 page views with an average of ~3 pages per visit and 71.60% new visits.
Accounting for these events – current and past – is important for future humanitarian and legal action.
