TEHRAN, March 15 (UPI) — An Iranian fighter jet came near a U.S. Predator drone flying over the Persian gulf, but turned away after a warning by U.S. Air Force jets, officials said.

The Pentagon issued a statement saying the Iranian jet came within 16 miles of the drone Tuesday as it conducted classified surveillance over international waters.
