“In bombing a wedding, the U.S. government has demonstrated that they either don’t know or don’t care who they were targeting. As a result, 12 innocent lives have been lost and many more destroyed,” Reprieve investigator Shiban said in a statement.

“These continuing drone strikes don’t bolster anyone’s security—they only serve to alienate the Yemeni people and undermine the rule of law. We can only hope that the US administration’s internal investigation is robust and that it results in needed policy change and reparation for those affected,” Shiban stated.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates that as many as 30 civilians were killed by U.S. drone strikes on Yemen in 2013.

The new year brings a continuation of U.S. drone attacks on the impoverished country, with a strike on Wednesday killing two people described by Reuters as “suspected al Qaeda militants.”
