"Please don't use that word to describe people who aren't actually in the business of causing injury or death*. It's inaccurate and makes you sound like the Daily Mail."

You don't have to actually be in the business of causing injury or death to be a terrorist - just threaten injury or death or destruction of property. If indeed (which I doubt - my money is on a couple of numpty kids) this was environmental activists of some kind then it is an act of terror - as in the threat of harm to life or property was caused by the actions of the drone flyers.
