International human rights lawyer and founder of Reprieve Clive Stafford Smith in conversation with Pakistani human rights lawyer Shahzad Akbar on the use of Drones


According to a recent broadsheet report, it is possible that nearly one third of the RAF could be made up of remotely controlled aircraft (Drones) within 20 years and the use of drones by the US airforce in the "War on Terror" has increased significantly on Obama's watch.
