Syrian death estimates

Today, AFP carried a story that the UN issued a new death estimate for Syria.  But the UN only a month ago said that it will no more make any estimate of casualties because the process is not reliable.  It also added that Syrian (Qatari-funded) opposition estimates are fine and dandy.  So if the UN had said that it will no more make estimate, which UN make that estimate for the AFP?

PS I found the source. The UN official made his estimates to the UN Security Council.  He said that the source is "reliable sources".   I KID YOU NOT.
