Iran high schools to teach drone hacking
The presence of U.S. spy drones over Iranian airspace has been an issue of contention and diplomatic tensions in recent years. Iran claimedlast year to have brought down a U.S. drone, which violated its airspace -- claims U.S. officials have rejected.
Now, according to a report from Fars -- Iran's state news service -- high school curricula will include lessons on how to hack and even bring down foreign drones. The report gave little sense that Iran's schools had the capability or technological know-how to import such lessons into the school day, but the intention gives a clear sense of Iranian officials' attitude to prying drones.
