Tehran, Iran (AP) - Iran's state TV says the country's Revolutionary Guard has captured a U.S. drone after it entered the Iranian airspace over the Persian Gulf.
The report Tuesday quotes the Guard's navy chief, Gen. Ali Fadavi, as saying that the "intruding" drone was captured, but gave no further details on the location or when the incident occurred.
Iran claimed in 2011 it brought down a CIA spy drone after it entered Iranian airspace from its eastern borders with Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Tehran later said it recovered data from the RQ-170 Sentinel, a top-secret drone equipped with stealth technology.
