Iran defiant over drone as Trump reportedly halts strikes

Iran defiant over drone as Trump reportedly halts strikesIran vowed Friday to defend its borders after downing a US drone it insisted had violated the country’s airspace, as reports emerged that President Donald Trump had approved then called off retaliatory strikes on Iranian targets. The downing of the drone — which Washington insists was above international waters but Iran says was within its airspace — has seen tensions between the two countries spike further after a series of attacks on tankers the US has blamed on Tehran. The commander of the aerospace arm of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards said the drone was warned twice before it was downed over the Gulf of Oman.
