At least 9,000 since the UN numbers reflects just the 100% known and confirmed deaths
GENEVA, December 11 (AP) - More than 9,000 people have died in 21 months of fighting in eastern Ukraine, even as a new ceasefire has largely held and contributed to a sharp decline in casualties since mid-August, according to the UN.
A report from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said 9,098 people including combatants and civilians have died in the conflict since April last year. The total is up from 7,883 in the previous quarterly report released in September. More than 20,000 have been injured, up from 17,610.
