US to Establish Drone Base to Spy on Terror Groups

The US military is planning on establishing an unarmed drone base in northwest Africa for surveillance missions on local al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist groups who pose a growing threat to the region. 

Officials said the base would only hold unarmed drones used for surveillance but have not ruled out the possibility of using the base to conduct drone missile strikes should the situation in the region worsen.
