Ahmadinejad threatens to send US to the `morgue`

`Resistance will continue until Iran sends its enemies to the morgue,` Ahmadinejad said.

Tehran: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to destroy the US and Israel and send them to the `morgue` if Iran is put on the defensive.

`Resistance will continue until Iran sends its enemies to the morgue,` Ahmadinejad said on his website.

The president was making a reference to the US and Israel, who he said were `on the verge of collapse and gasping for their last breath`.

A report said Ahmadinejad may have been reacting to news from Iranian state media that Tehran brought down a US drone flying near its Fordo nuclear enrichment plant in Qom province.

State-run Press TV, however, did not elaborate on when the incident happened.

US officials have said there were unaware that an American unmanned aircraft was downed.
