BEIRUT (AP) An activist group says more than 2,750 people have been killed in Syria so far this month, bringing the death toll since the conflict began to more than 19,000.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says if the current pace of killing continues through the end of July, it will be the deadliest month since the Syrian uprising erupted in March 2011.

Observatory chief Rami Abdul-Rahman said Sunday that 2,752 people 1,933 civilians, 738 government troops and 81 rebels were killed in the first 21 days of July.

Abdul-Rahman said June had been the deadliest month with 2,924 deaths.

The average daily death toll in June was 94, while this month it has increased to an average of 131 a day.
