War victim advocates applaud Pakistani Government decision and urge creation of standing policy
WASHINGTON, DC, March 28, 2011-Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict (CIVIC) today applauded the Pakistani Government's decision to compensate the families of civilians killed or injured in a US drone strike in North Waziristan on 17 March 2011.
"Drone victims have been all but ignored. Before this pledge of compensation, civilian victims received nothing for their losses," said Sarah Holewinski, CIVIC's executive director.

New on-the-ground report finds conflict victims overlooked, angry and in need
WASHINGTON DC, October 13, 2010, 12am EDT - Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict (CIVIC) issued a report today detailing civilian conflict losses in northwest Pakistan, the views of victims, and warring parties' efforts to address their losses.
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 23, 2010 - The possible deaths of two civilians caused last week by Pakistani security forces highlights the need for Pakistan to thoroughly investigate all claims of civilian harm and offer apologies and compensation if appropriate, the Campaign for Innocent Victims of Conflict said today.
"Combat operations in Pakistan have been ongoing without any proper way to investigate civilian harm or make amends for casualties," said Sarah Holewinski, executive director of CIVIC.
