Cameron Seeks More U.K. Investment in Drones, Special Forces

Prime Minister David Cameron said more of the U.K.’s defense budget should be spent on drones and special forces in a bid to counter the terrorist threat from Islamic extremists.

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne announced in last week’s budget that U.K. spending on defense will equal the NATO target of 2 percent of gross domestic product through the end of the decade.
