Today, the House of Representatives will hear from Pakistanis who have been affected by drone strikes in their country.

Representative Alan Grayson of Florida has convened a briefing where young victims of drone strikes will tell their stories.

The Rehman family will speak with legislators, telling them about the drone strike that killed their grandmother on Oct. 24, 2012, in Pakistan.

This will be the first time U.S. legislators hear testimonies directly from civilian drone-strike victims.
