Iran reports previous incident with 'spy drone' in May


Tehran (AFP) - Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted a map on Sunday showing a border incident with a "spy drone" encroaching its airspace in late May.

Days after Iran shot down another US drone it said had entered its territory, Zarif said the US-made MQ9 Reaper -- also widely used for carrying out military strikes -- had entered Iranian airspace on May 26.

The drone was first warned at around 08:30 PM, the map showed, without specifying a time zone.

That was shortly after the aircraft entered Iran's territorial waters off the coast of Asaluyeh city in Bushehr province.
