Claire Seaward, of Oxfam said:

"One hundred thousand deaths is a horrific milestone in a conflict that has reached a staggering scale with eight million Syrians desperately in need of aid and almost 1.8 million forced to flee to neighbouring countries. Behind the shocking statistics there is incredible human suffering and hardship yet the promised peace talks seem as far away as ever.  The world cannot continue to look away - there must be greater international efforts to find a political solution and stop the bloodshed."
