Iran shoots down US drone as tensions escalate

The US military has condemned what it described as an “unprovoked attack” in international air space, after Iran shot down a US drone.

But the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said the drone was actually in Iranian¬†airspace, and¬†called the incident as a “clear and precise message to America.”

Wherever it was, the episode has only heightened tensions in the region.
