Imran Khan has made it clear what he thinks of the use of drones by the United States.

Khan, who has been at the forefront of a high-profile campaign as leader of the Pakistan Movement for Justice party (PTI) to end US drone strikes in northern Pakistan, had been in Canada to give a speech and was on his way to a fundraising dinner in the US on Friday.

He claims that the drone strikes kill large numbers of innocent civilians – a claim denied by the US.

He added: “Missed flight and sad to miss the fundraising lunch in NY but nothing will change my stance.”

If you are unaware of his views, this short video clip of Khan at Davos will clear things up.
