Iran shoots down 'foreign' drone conducting surveillance over its southern port city of Mahshahr

Iran's air defense force has shot down a 'foreign' drone in the country's southwest, the official IRNA news agency reported today.

The agency claimed the drone was shot out of the sky early Friday at the port city of Mahshahr, which is in the oil-rich Khuzestan province and lies on the Persian Gulf.

Provincial governor Gholamreza Shariati told IRNA that the drone belonged to a 'foreign' country and that parts of the drone had been recovered in a nearby lagoon.

A US Defense official told the MailOnline: 'There are no reports of a U.S. drone being shot down.'
