Since 2004, drone strikes under a secret war by the U.S. [pdf] have killed an estimated 3,105 people in Pakistan according to data collected by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Less than 2% of the victims are high-profile targets. The rest are civilians, children and alleged combatants. This visualization created by Pitch Interactive brings these startling numbers together, and has been shared widely on social media sites.
