Anti-arms Banksy sells for £205,000 at auc­tion

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

A new Banksy piece has sold for more than £200,000 at auc­tion.

The art­work, Civil­ian Drone Strike, de­picts drones de­stroy­ing a child­like draw­ing of a house while a girl and her dog watch on in horror.

It was sold for £205,000 at an ex­hi­bi­tion set up to op­pose an arms fair tak­ing place in East Lon­don.

The money will be split be­tween Cam­paign Against Arms Trade, which seeks to abol­ish the in­ter­na­tional weapons busi­ness, and Re­prieve, which fights for hu­man rights.
