Iranian media: US drone captured in last few days

Iranian media has said a US ScanEagle drone was captured "in the last few days" by the naval unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps after entering Iranian airspace while gathering information over Gulf waters.

A US Navy spokesman said they were aware of the reports, and were looking into them.

Last month the US said Iranian warplanes shot at an American surveillance drone flying in international airspace. Iran said the aircraft had entered its airspace.
