Iran protests unlawful US flights

Iran sent protests to the United States condemning the illegal overflights by two unmanned American aircraft which crashed in Iran in recent months, according to documents circulated at the United Nations on Monday. Iran's deputy UN ambassador Mehdi Danesh-Yazdi asked the UN Security Council on Oct. 26 to circulate two letters protesting "the violation of the territory and airspace of Iran by two American unmanned aircrafts." The two letters, which were circulated Monday, warned that "the government of the United States of America will be responsible for the consequences of any recurrence of its unlawful acts."
