The United States is the main user of military drones to carry out bombings. Since 2001, there have been many American attacks on Afghanistan, despite the lack of information, but Pakistan, the Yemen and Somalia have suffered bombings (graph) as well. Because governments are opaque about these types of attack, consortiums of journalists report the victims of these strikes from a distance. Countries that possess these devices are known thanks to observers of this high-tech industry (map).
