un to probe drone attacks

It is important to make sure that the rules of warfare keep pace with the changes in methods and tactics, and drones – or unmanned aerial vehicles – are a new weapon being used more frequently.

Now the UN has announced an inquiry to investigate such attacks.

What about a meaningful United Nations investigation into terrorist attacks by state-sponsored terrorist groups or army’s attacking their own citizens?  These attacks are killing many thousands of people each year, but do not arouse the interest of the UN.

It is unlikely to happen, because it would upset too many UN members who are allies of those terrorist states.
