UPDATE 17 September

Government declines to release the evidence.  Echoes of Iraq?

The rights organisation Rights Watch UK has begun legal action onA Reaper drone the government to release the advice of the Attorney General following the drone strike which killed a jihadi in Syria.  The killing was announced by David Cameron in parliament on 8 September.  The killing took place in Syria with which we are not at war.

This is a story the true facts of which are likely to unfold over the coming months.  Questions have been asked about the legality and how real the threat to the people of Britain was to justify an execution by drone attack.
