Iran: Data decoded from CIA drone captured in 2011
Tehran: Iran says the country`s Revolutionary Guard has decoded all of the data from an advanced CIA spy drone captured last year.
Tehran has previously said it recovered information from the RQ-170 Sentinel craft, but today`s announcement on state-run Press TV suggests technicians may have broken encryptions.
The broadcast quotes the Guard`s aerospace chief, General Ami Ali Hajizadeh, as saying the drone had not carried out missions over nuclear facilities before it went down in December 2011 in eastern Iran near the border with Afghanistan.
Press TV gave no other details on the claims of recovered data from the drone, which carries stealth technology.
The Guard also claimed last week that it captured another US drone after it entered Iranian airspace over the Persian Gulf.
