A picture of war: the CIA’s drone strikes in Pakistan

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has been recording every reported CIA drone strike in Pakistan. The result is a extensive database which details every known attack and the numbers killed in a covert war that has been bitterly fought since 2004.

So far, the Bureau’s detailed analysis has found that 344 strikes have killed between 2,562 and 3,325. This number includes at least 474 civilians – though the true figure maybe as high as 881.
