Syrian troops backed by artillery and warplanes fought rebels on multiple fronts on September 5, 2012 as peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi described the death toll as “staggering” and destruction “catastrophic.”

More than 100,000 Syrians fled their country in August, the highest monthly total since the crisis began in March 2011, the U.N. refugee agency said Tuesday. That exodus sharply increased the number of Syrians now living in neighboring countries, bringing the total number of refugees to 234,368 in the past 17 months, the agency said.
