Drone loss fuels fears of US technology leak

[ Gulf News ] 7 Dec

The radar-evading RQ-170 drone that crash-landed over the weekend in Iran was on a mission for the CIA, according to a senior US official, raising fears that the aircraft's sophisticated technology could be exploited by Tehran or shared with other American rivals.

It was unclear whether the drone's mission took it over Iran or whether it strayed there accidentally because of technical malfunctions, the official said.

Iran claims that it had "shot down" an American drone on 3 Dec.
