Hostage killings apology

23 Apr, 2015

Obama apologies for killing of two hostages in US drone attack on an al-Qaeda base.

This morning I has expressed my grief and condolences to the families of two hostages – one American, Warren Weinstein, and an Italian, Giovanni Lo Porto – who were tragically killed in a US counter-terrorism operation. Warren and Giovanni were aid workers in Pakistan devoted to improving the lives of the Pakistani people.
