Iran claimed to have captured an American unmanned drone on Tuesday, and displayed it on national broadcasts, though American Navy says that all aircrafts in the region have been accounted for, according to the Washington Post.
The conflicting accounts have led to controversy about intelligence and reconnaissance efforts in the region. According to the Washington Post, there have been doubts about the capture of the drone, because of its good condition, despite its lightweight carbon-fiber body.
There is a possibility that the drone was taken from the sea or from another country in the region that uses drones, according to the Washington Post.
According to the Reuters, White House spokesman Jay Carney said: "We have no evidence that the Iranian claims are true."
