UK Prime Minister David Cameron said Monday that two British citizens were killed in a targeted drone strike in Syria in August.
Cameron justified the attack, saying he tried to prevent terrorist outrages in the UK planned by Islamic State fighters. "There was a terrorist directing murder on our streets and no other means to stop them," he explained.
The attack killed Britons Reyaad Khan and Ruhul Amin in a vehicle near Raqqa on Aug. 21. Khan was from Cardiff, Wales and Amin from Scotland. Both left Britain to fight for ISIS.
