Iran Shoots down US Spy Drone.

There has been no independent corroboration of the Iranian claim.

The head of the Revolutionary Guards' air force wing, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, said on Sunday that two "Western spy drones" had been shot down in the Gulf.

He said "many" other unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) had been shot down over an unspecified period but that this was the first time it had been reported.

I have trouble believing that if the Iranians had shot down "many" other drones, they would not make as much political hay out of it as they could.

Yeah so far it sounds like the same ol same ol - of course if there's a carrier on it's way in or out of the Gulf this could be a prelude to invasion!

Still no actual confirmation from anyone outside of Iran but apparently multiple sources inside Iran have picked up the story, and MSNBC is now reporting it via Iranian sources.

A U.S. drone was shot down while flying over a nuclear facility in Iran, according to reports in the Iranian media.

Iran's Fars news agency reported that lawmaker Ali Aqazadeh Dafsari, a member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, had confirmed the unmanned spy plane was flying near the Fordo nuclear enrichment plant in Qom province when it was brought down by Revolutionary Guard soldiers.

Other Iranian media reported the same story, including Hamsayeh.net.
