Iran dismisses Trump report that U.S. Navy downed 'provocative' drone

Iran dismisses Trump report that U.S. Navy downed 'provocative' droneIran on Friday denied President Donald Trump’s assertion that the U.S. Navy has destroyed one of its drones, saying all of its unmanned planes were accounted for, amid growing international concern that both sides could blunder into a war in the Gulf. In the latest episode to test nerves around the strategic waterway, Trump said on Thursday the drone had flown to within 1,000 yards (914 meters) of the U.S. warship Boxer in a “provocative and hostile action” and had ignored several calls to stand down. Iran dismissed the report.
