UK military goes on drone charm offensive – Europe – Al Jazeera English.

Unmanned aircraft, or drones, are playing an increasingly important role in military campaigns around the world.

The UK says 459 missiles have been fired from its unmanned Reaper aircraft in Afghanistan, with only one civilian recorded killed.
