LAS VEGAS — Anti-drone activists are protesting at an Air Force Base 40 miles north of Las Vegas where two demonstrators were arrested for blocking an entrance gate last week.

Codepink and Veterans for Peace are among the groups that gathered again Monday at the entrance to Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs to protest the use of unmanned aircraft in military actions.

Veterans for Peace spokesman Toby Blome of California says thousands of innocent children have been killed by drone warfare.

Blome and JoAnn Lingle of Indiana were arrested at the base on Friday, the 16th anniversary of the war on Afghanistan.

The U.S. military first used assassin drones there in 2001.
