TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s armed forces have shot down an unmanned U.S. spy plane that violated Iranian airspace along the country’s eastern border, the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday.
An unidentified military official quoted in the report warned of a strong and crushing response to any violations of the country’s airspace by American drone aircraft.
“An advanced RQ-170 unmanned American spy plane was shot down by Iran’s armed forces. It suffered minor damage and is now in possession of Iran’s armed forces,” IRNA quoted the official as saying.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Sunday called for “comprehensive reform” of New York’s tax code that would mean higher tax rates for the wealthy and a tax cut for the middle class, according to officials briefed on the plan.
Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat whose popularity soared as he cut spending and won concessions from labor unions during his first year in office, also called for a stimulus package that would increase spending on road and bridge construction; finance new programs to train poor urban youths; and legalize resort-style casino gambling.
