US drone strike victims in Pakistan plan legal action

In Pakistan survivors of US drone strikes, and families bereaved by them, are planning legal action in the country's Supreme Court.

The CIA is estimated to have carried out more than 300 drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal belt since 2004, killing more than 2,000 people.

The majority are thought to be suspected militants, but campaigners say hundreds of innocent civilians are also among the dead.
