The Iranian Revolutionary Guard has announced it has downed an American unmanned plane that entered Iran's airspace.

According to the statement, the drone is a ScanEagle and has made a number of reconoissance flights over the Persian Gulf in the end of November.

According to Iranian sources, the plane, probably launched from a large battleship in the gulf, hade encroached upon Iran's airspace.
