Trump: Iran made very big mistake by downing drone

United States President Donald Trump said on Thursday that Iran made a "very big mistake" by downing a US drone earlier in the day.

"Iran made a very big mistake!" Trump tweeted following the incident.

Earlier, Iran said it downed a US RQ-4 Global Hawk drone in its airspace above the province of Hormozgan in the south of the country. The US confirmed its unmanned aircraft was shot down but insisted it had not entered Iranian airspace. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that any potential US military action against Iran could have "catastrophic" consequences for the region.
