Civilian drones alarm rights groups

US civil liberties groups are concerned over the moral frameworks and lack of legislation on civilian use of drones.

    Controlled either by remote or through a pre-programmed flight path, the Maverick drone offers operators a birds-eye view of the ground below, and can launch from just about anywhere.

    Makers of these drones, said to be specialised for civilian use, say buyers are lining up for training sessions.

    But for human rights activists, it is the lack of regulations that are a cause for concern.
