Pakistani drone victims seek compensation from their government

In May 9 2012 The Foundation for Fundamental Rights filed two separate constitutional petitions challenging the Government of Pakistan's failure to protect its citizens from US drone attacks. Both relate to a March 17 2012 strike on a North Waziristan jirga which killed 50 people.
The Petitioners assert that at least 3000 people have been killed in over 320 CIA drone strikes in FATA, mostly in the North Waziristan Agency (NWA).
