Court case over drone strike 'could force UK to reveal intelligence exchanges with U.S.'
London, May 25 (ANI): Human rights lawyers acting on behalf of a Pakistani student are seeking a judicial review aimed at forcing the Foreign Secretary to say whether there is such a policy, in a case which threatens to expose ministers to allegations of war crimes.
The court action was brought by Noor Khan whose father was killed in a suspected U.S. missile strike last year. The action could force Britain to reveal whether it gives America intelligence for drone attacks on terrorist suspects, reports The Telegraph.
The U.S. has used hundreds of drone strikes against suspected Al Qaeda and Taliban targets in Pakistan since 2004. It has played a key role in thwarting terror plots against the West.
Michael Clarke, director of the Royal United Services Institute, said he would be "astonished" if British agents were not giving their U.S. counterparts information to help them locate terrorist suspects.
"I believe it to be true that our intelligence information in certain cases has pinpointed targets for attacks and those attacks do amount to extra-judicial killing," Clarke said. (ANI)
