An Iranian navy commander claims Iran captured two small U.S. drones in past missions in addition to at least four others reported earlier.

Adm. Amir Rastgari says the two drones were of the small, low-altitude RQ-11 type, according to the semiofficial Fars news agency. He said one was captured in summer of 2011 and the other Nov. 2012.
