Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced on Thursday that its air defense force had shot down an intruding American spy drone in the country's southern coastal province of Hormozgan.
Iran claimed the US drone on Thursday was over Iranian airspace when it was shot down - but American officials stated unequivocally the incident occurred in global airspace.

Following his comments, Iran said it had executed a man convicted of spying for the US.
"But they would have been pretty soon".
