Over 100 groups demand Biden end 'unlawful' drone strikes outside war zones

More than 100 organisations have urged US President Biden to end "unlawful" drone strikes and the use of other lethal force outside of traditional combat zones.

In a letter released on Wednesday, 113 activist groups framed the issue as a matter of racial justice, and said drone strikes had "exacted an appalling toll on Muslim, Brown and Black communities in multiple parts of the world".

"We appreciate your stated commitments to ending 'forever wars,' promoting racial justice, and centering human rights in US foreign policy," the groups said in the letter.

"Disavowing and ending the lethal strikes program is both a human rights and racial justice imperative in meeting these commitments.
