WASHINGTON- The United States will in coming weeks publicly release an assessment of combatant and non-combatant casualties from US strikes outside areas of active hostilities since 2009, President Barack Obama's assistant for homeland security and counter-terrorism said on Monday.

Lisa Monaco made the announcement in an address at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, adding that the data would be released annually in future.

"We know that not only is greater transparency the right thing to do, it is the best way to maintain the legitimacy of our counter-terrorism effort and the broad support of our allies," Monaco said
