Lawyers challenge UK over Afghan missile strikes
Friday 10 August 2012
Lawyers acting for an Afghan who lost five relatives in a missile attack say they are asking Britain to disclose if it had any role in compiling a so-called US military kill list.
Rosa Curling, from lawyers Leigh Day & Co., saidtoday she had asked Britain's defense ministry and its Serious Organized Crime Agency to confirm whether they supplied information on suspected insurgents and drug traffickers to be targeted in Afghanistan.
Habib Rahman lost five relatives in a strike in Takhar province, in northeastern Afghanistan, in Sept. 2010.
Nato said at the time the attack had killed insurgents. Rahman's lawyers claim it followed a case of mistaken targeting after names were added to a kill list.
Britain's defense ministry said it works "strictly within the bounds of international law."
