Drone ‘kill list’ could leave MPs, military & spies ‘facing murder charges’

Drone ‘kill list’ could leave MPs, military & spies ‘facing murder charges’ — RT UK
The joint committee on human rights warned on Tuesday that killing with drones outside warzones could lead to “criminal prosecution for murder or complicity in murder.”
The report also warned that the widely-used term “targeted killing” sounded “uncomfortably close to assassination“ and took the view that the UK pursues an active policy “to use lethal force abroad outside armed conflict” under the banner of “counter-terrorism.”
