US denies Iranian drone capture claim
A U.S. Navy spokesman said that no drone has been lost in the Gulf recently after Iran said on Tuesday it had captured a U.S. drone in its airspace during the last few days.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps said a ScanEagle drone had been gathering information over the Gulf and had entered Iranian airspace when it was "captured".
The spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Central Command in Bahrain said, "The U.S. Navy has fully accounted for all unmanned air vehicles operating in the Middle East region. Our operations in the Gulf are confined to internationally recognized water and air space. We have no record that we have lost any ScanEagles recently."
