Majority of world does not support drone strikes

According to a study by Washington-based Pew Research Center, the majority of the 39 countries polled oppose the Obama administration’s drone strikes. In 31 nations, at least half of those surveyed disapprove of the US conducting targeted killings in locations that range from Pakistan to Yemen and Somalia. At least 3/4 hold this view in 15 countries. The only three countries where the majority supports the unmanned campaign are Israel (64 per cent), Kenya (56pc) and the US itself (61pc). In the US, 69 percent of Republicans endorse the policy.
