Pakistan: 3 percent of drone deaths were civilians

An unmanned U.S. Predator drone flies over Kandahar Air Field, southern Afghanistan, on a moonlit night in 2010. The Pakistani government said Wednesday that 3 percent of the people killed in U.S. drone strikes in the country since 2008 were civilians, a surprisingly low figure given past official calculations and estimates from independent organizations.
