Tracking US drone strikes and other covert actions in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. The Bureau’s comprehensive reporting on civilian deaths helped lead to greater official transparency on targeted killing, and we will continue to provide the data needed to hold the White House to account.About the team @latest_strike
We verify our data from numerous sources and provide it in the form of narrative timelines and Google spreadsheets. It is freely available under a Creative Commons license.
This is the evidence which helped the Bureau together with the New York Times' Visual Investigations Unit prove the US carried out a strike which locals say killed eleven children
We proved in the face of US denial that its military carried out an airstrike that killed seven children, their mother and four young cousins in Afghanistan
The figure is lower than those recorded by other organisations. The new report shows an improvement in military openness about overseas operations, but there is still a transparency gap
