Iran “made a very big mistake” in shooting down a US military surveillance drone over the Strait of Hormuz, President Donald Trump says. However, he told reporters it could have been the result of human error, saying: “I find it hard to believe it was intentional.” Iran said the drone had violated Iranian airspace, but the US military denied this. The incident comes amid escalating tension between the two countries.
