Iran Says It Flew Surveillance Drone Over US Aircraft Carrier

Tehran: Iran flew a surveillance drone over a US aircraft carrier and took "precise" photographs of it as part of an ongoing naval drill, state television reported on Friday. The US Navy said an unarmed Iranian drone flew near a French and American carrier on January 12, but couldn't confirm it was the same incident.

The reported overflight by the unmanned aircraft came after a series of naval incidents between Iran and the US in the greater Persian Gulf, including test rocket fire by the Islamic Republic and its brief capture of American sailors who strayed into its territorial waters.
