Iran Shoots Down a U.S. Drone, Escalating Tensions

Iran shot down a United States
surveillance drone early Thursday, both nations said, but they differed
on the crucial issue of whether the aircraft had violated Iranian
airspace, in the latest escalation in tensions that have raised fears of
war between the two countries.Iranian
officials said that the drone was over Iran, which the American
military denied — an important distinction in determining who was at
fault — and each side accused the other of being the aggressor.
