(Washington, DC) -- A Pakistani school teacher and his children are scheduled to be the first drone victims to testify before Congress later today. Rafiq ur Rehman lost his mother last October in a drone missile attack near his home. The attack also injured his three children. He and his children were asked to come to the U.S. by Representative Alan Grayson of Florida. Grayson said it's important to hear from the victims in such attacks. The appearance comes only a few days after a "Washington Post" report that said Pakistan's government secretly approved of U.S. drone strikes in the country, despite their being condemned by the public.
