Iranian state television has broadcast footage of a US military drone which was shot down on Thursday.

Footage of the debris purports to show fragments from the destroyed RQ-4A Global Hawk which was reportedly hit by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.

Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards air force, said the debris was proof that the U.S. drone had been over Iranian territorial waters when it was shot down.

But Washington claims that the drone was downed over international airspace in the Strait of Hormuz.
