A high-ranking US senator has estimated America's use of drone strikes has
killed about 4,700 people, including civilians.

Republican Lindsey Graham is the first US government official to offer an
estimate on the total number of fatalities in America's secretive drone war.


... "Sometimes you hit innocent people, and I hate that, but we're at war,
and we've taken out some very senior members of Al Qaeda," Mr Graham told
the Easley Rotary Club."
