Iran downs a US drone

A U.S. official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity as the information had yet to be cleared for release to the public.
The incident heightens tensions between Tehran and Washington after Donald Trump withdrew from a nuclear deal, which is still supported by allies including Britain and France.
The downing of the RQ-4 Global Hawk comes after the U.S. military previously alleged Iran fired a missile at another drone last week that responded to the attack on two oil tankers near the Gulf of Oman. The U.S. blames Iran for the attack on the ships, something Tehran denies.
