Iran says 2 downed spy planes were US-operated

Iran says it has determined that two pilotless spy planes it claims to have downed were operated by the United States. An Iranian official says authorities will publicly display them.

The Revolutionary Guard's air force said earlier this month that it shot down two highly advanced spy planes that had violated Iranian airspace. It provided no proof.

The U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, which is based in the Gulf, said at the time that it had no reports of any aircraft downed recently.
