Pakistani to sue CIA over drone attacks

Pakistani to sue CIA over drone attacks 29 Nov 2010 A Pakistani tribesman says he will sue President Barack Obama's administration and CIA officials for killing his son and brother in a non-UN-sanctioned strike. Karim Khan's relatives were slain in an unsanctioned US drone attack in North Waziristan tribal district, back in 2009. Now, he says he will file a lawsuit and ask for compensation. "That drone attack killed my son, my brother and a local man. We are not terrorists, we are common citizens," Khan told a news conference in Islamabad.
