US Drone Killed Two Hostages: Reprieve Comment

NEW YORK - Commenting on today's news that a US drone mistakenly killed two hostages, an Italian and an American, in a January strike, Reprieve US attorney Alka Pradhan, who represents other civilian victims of drone attacks, said:

"It's right that the White House has come clean and admitted its tragic mistake in killing these hostages, and our hearts go out to their families.

"It's worth remembering, however, that Dr. Weinstein and Mr Lo Porto are far from the first innocents to die by our drones, and in no other case has the US apologized for its mistake.
