US to pay ‘$1.2m’ to Italian family of drone strike victim

RAEL’S COMMENT:
So, money paid to the families of the US or Europeans killed by drones… but nothing for the innocent Arabic people also killed as “collateral damages”: pure racism!

 

The US government has agreed to pay €1.1m ($1.2m; £934,000) to the family of an Italian aid worker killed by a drone strike in Pakistan, reports say.

Aid worker Giovanni Lo Porto, 37, was killed while being held hostage by al-Qaeda in 2015.

US aid worker Warren Weinstein, 73, being held with him also died in the operation.

The White House has confirmed that payments were made to both families, without releasing details.

President Barack Obama admitted the deaths in April last year, saying that he profoundly regretted them. It was announced that compensation would be paid to the families.

Officials said at the time that the operation had targeted an al-Qaeda compound in the border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan, and that they had believed there were no civilians present.

But according to La Repubblica newspaper (in Italian) and the Guardian newspaper, the agreement states that Mr Lo Porto was killed inside Pakistan.
