Drone attacks in Yemen hit mostly civilians

Nearly 800 people have been killed and many more injured in increasing US strikes since 2002.

    US drones' strikes in Yemen nearly tripled last year compared to the year before, from 18 to 53, according to the New America Foundation, a Washington-based think tank.

    According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, there have been up to 154 strikes by US drones in Yemen since 2002, that have killed almost 800 people.
     
    But it is mostly civilians who are often injured or killed in these attacks.
