Friday, Jul 22,2011, 9:26:46 PM

Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has denied earlier reports on downing a US drone in the nuclear site of Fordo, in Qom, south of Tehran.

According to Fars News Agency, the IRGC's Public Relations "denied certain reports on the downing of a US spy drone in the region of Fordo and said: What led to these reports was the [operation of] targeting of a test target in the sky by the IRGC's Aerospace Defence Force in the open region of Qom Province."

"The IRGC's statement stressed that due to the vigilance of the Islamic Republic's air defence, the US spy drones are not basically able to enter our country's space.

"In conclusion, the statement added: Obviously, such reports must be released by the Armed Forces' authorities [rather than MPs]."
