Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) say they shot down a US spy drone on Thursday morning.

The BBC's Mark Lowen sees the damage caused to one of the oil tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman.

The military action under consideration would be an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program, the officials further claimed.

Elected in the 2013 elections, Morsi spent the last six years under arrest when the military assumed leadership of Egypt.

The rocket fire comes amid tensions between the US and Iran and as Islamic State continues to threaten Iraq months after its defeat in Syria.
