Washington: The US last Fri­day re­leased fig­ures for the first time that showed that be­tween 64 and 116 civil­ians were killed in drone strikes out­side “ar­eas of ac­tive hos­til­i­ties” on Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s watch.

These ca­su­al­ties, the US’ count of which is sig­nif­i­cantly lower than that es­ti­mated by non-gov­ern­men­tal bod­ies, oc­curred out­side Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, the so-called “ar­eas of ac­tive hos­til­i­ties”. Hin­dus­tan Times
