The death toll in Syria's three-year war has eclipsed 170,000 people, one-third of them civilians, an activist group said in a new toll released Thursday.Among the ranks of loyalists killed were 39,036 regular troops, as well as 24,655 members of pro-regime militias, 509 fighters from Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah, and 1,603 other non-Syrians fighting on Assad's side in the war.Another 20,000 people detained by the regime were completely unaccounted for, said the Observatory, as were some 7,000 regime troops held by rebel fighters.
