Hague faces suit on drone strikes

Lawyers for the family of a man killed in a US drone attack in Pakistan said they would begin legal action against foreign secretary William Hague today, accusing him of complicity in strikes they say broke international laws. London law firm Leigh Day & Co said it had “credible, unchallenged” evidence that Hague oversaw a policy of passing British intelligence to US forces planning attacks against militants in Pakistan. It plans to issue formal proceedings against Hague at the High Court in London on behalf of Noor Khan, whose father died in a drone attack last year. A Foreign Office spokesman said it did not comment on ongoing legal proceedings.
