Killer Robots Ban

Posted: Updated:

Israel - An international rights group is pushing for a ban this morning....on fully automatic robots in combat situations.

Right now, armed robot sentries are in use in Israel and South Korea.

However, those robots and U-S drones all require human confirmation before firing.

The rights group is proposing an international arms treaty....to ensure there is always an actual human decision-making step in the process of taking a life.

Similar treaties banning the use of certain armaments include the ban on chemical weapons....which was  enacted after World War One.
