Iran Blows Up Replica U.S. Warship During Defense Drill

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard blew up a replica of a U.S. aircraft carrier Wednesday during defense drills conducted near the Persian Gulf’s Strait of Hormuz, a major passage for world oil shipments.

The attack, which was broadcast on state television, marks the first time Iran has used such a replica in a drill, USA Today reports. It took place nearly a year after it was revealed that Iran was constructing a U.S. ship mock-up.
