US aircraft carrier `spotted` in Iran wargames zone
Tehran: Iran says one of its surveillance planes has shot video and photographed a US aircraft carrier during an Iranian drill near a strategic waterway in the Persian Gulf.
The official IRNA news agency on Thursday quoted Rear Adm Mahmoud Mousavi as saying this shows Iran`s navy is "observing moves by foreign forces" in the area.
IRNA`s report didn`t provide details or say which US carrier was filmed. It`s unclear what value such footage could have.
Iran is holding a 10-day military exercise in international waters beyond the Strait of Hormuz — the passageway for one-sixth of the world`s oil supply.
The report follows US warnings over Iranian threats to choke off traffic through the strait if Washington imposes sanctions targeting Iran`s crude exports.
