World HR bodies to campaign against drone attacks

By: Inder Kishan

NEW YORK: After the killing to two British children in a drone attack on tribal areas of Pakistan on Oct 31, Human Rights organisations have unleashed a new wave of criticism. These organisations have said that a wide campaign would be launched in courts of Pakistan, America and Europe against drone programme of American Central Intelligence Agency.

American media reported quoting lawyers who would participate in this campaign that this movement would start as the movement against former president was started for his Guantanamo Bay programme.

In this connection as an initial step a British welfare organisation and its Pakistani shareholders have written a letter to American ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter on December 2. He has been asked in this letter to explain his role in the October 31 drone attack that claimed lives of two British children. These children were 12 and 18 years old.
