TEHRAN: A drone operated by Iranian state television was shot down over Tehran after apparently violating a “no fly zone” while filming Friday prayers, local media reported.

The ISNA news agency said the craft was destroyed by “anti-air defence” after it flew over Enghelab Square in the centre of Iran’s capital.

“The drone didn’t respect the no fly zone” around the square, which is near the offices of Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and several state institutions.

The report did not specify where the drone crashed after being shot down or whether its downing had caused any damage or injuries.
