Iran’s semiofficial Fars news agency is reporting that a local fisherman has found parts of the US spy drone that Iran shot down in the Gulf of Oman last week.

The report says the parts will be delivered to Iranian security forces in Qeshm Island, which is located in the Strait of Hormuz, the chokepoint through which all oil trade passes in the Persian Gulf.

Officials have yet to confirm the report.

Iranian authorities had already shown parts of the downed drone, valued at more than $100 million, to journalists on Friday.

Iran says it shot down the spy drone for violating Iranian airspace, which the US insists was flying above international waters.

US President Donald Trump called off strikes in retaliation as tensions flare between Washington and Tehran.
