IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Berlin, Dec 4, IRNA -- A US drone flying over western Afghanistan had gone out of control late last week and maybe the one Iran said it had shot down over its own airspace, the German Press Agency DPA quoted NATO as saying Sunday.

'The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to which the Iranians are referring may be a US reconnaissance aircraft that had been flying a mission over western Afghanistan late last week,' NATO said.

'The operators of the UAV lost control of the aircraft and had been working to determine its status,' it added.

Iran said earlier on Sunday that a US spy drone was shot down by Iran's military in the eastern part of the country.
