Amnesty International called on the U.S. to investigate reports of civilians killed and wounded by CIA drone strikes in Pakistan in a report released Tuesday that provided new details about the alleged victims of the attacks, including a 68-year-old grandmother hit while farming with her grandchildren.
Several different organizations have tried
to track the number of civilian casualties from nearly ten years of
drone strikes in Pakistan, including the Long War Journal website, the
New America Foundation think tank and the Bureau of Investigative
journalism. These groups indicated that the attacks have killed between
2,065 and 3,613 people, the report said. Between 153 and 926 were
thought to be civilians.
