And the U.S. government has reached an agreement with the family of Giovanni Lo Porto, an Italian aid worker killed in a CIA drone strike in Pakistan last year. Lawyers for the family told The Intercept the government had paid compensation, but did not disclose the amount. The agreement comes more than a year after President Obama acknowledged and apologized for the operation, which killed Lo Porto and a U.S. government contractor named Warren Weinstein. Despite hundreds of hours of surveillance, Obama said the United States had not known that the hostages were present.
