    It seems unbelievable, but American drones killed more civilians than al-Qaeda terrorists during the airstrikes in Yemen.

    Grave Consequences

    The UN’s Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has released a report on US drone strikes in Yemen.

    According to figures maintained by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism's Drone War program, at least 101 people have been killed by confirmed drone strikes in Yemen, plus 26 to 61 others killed by “possible extra drone strikes.” In covert missions since 2002, around 156 and 365 civilians have also been killed, according to the group.
