168 Children Killed in Drone Strikes in Pakistan in 7 Years

Rob Crilly reports for Telegraph that, “In an extensive analysis of open-source documents, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism found that 2,292 people had been killed by US missiles, including as many as 775 civilians.”

Crilly writes that “The strikes, which began under President George W Bush but have since accelerated during the presidency of Barack Obama, are hated in Pakistan, where families live in fear of the bright specks that appear to hover in the sky overhead.”
