Anti-drone activists supporters of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek -e-Insaf  (PTI) party, CodePink and Representatives of Jamaat -i-Islami gathered outside UN offices in New York to campaign for an end to the use of armed drones which have killed many civilians. As Saeedullah Khan who lives in Pakistan said earlier this week:-

“This drone strike was an attack on us, on our provincial government. It was an attack on our territory, not the tribal areas. Who knows where the next drone will strike?”
