US denies Iranian drone capture report
NBC News, Reuters: The U.S. Navy says it had not lost any drones over the Persian Gulf recently after Iran claimed to have captured one in its airspace.
The semi-official Fars and the state-run IRNA news agencies reported that a U.S. ScanEagle drone was gathering information over Gulf waters and had entered Iranian airspace.
