Obama sets new rules for drone attacks

US President Barack Obama said Thursday he had signed new policy guidance regulating the conditions when the United States can use unmanned airborne drones to kill terror suspects abroad.

The guidance includes requirements that a target must pose a continuing "imminent" threat to Americans, and says lethal action can be be used only if a suspect cannot feasibly be captured, and there is a legal basis for acting.
