An American Falcon plane was forced to land in Iran after illegally entering the Iranian air space from Turkey, the semi-official Iranian agency Fars informs, quoted by AFP. However, the Pentagon denies the incident. Presumably, the plane was authorized to leave Iran the next day after the whole crew was interrogated.

Iranian authorities allegedly took the decision after they found out that the plane entered the air space by accident, according to the Iranian news agency. The United States denies all the information. However, an Iranian official declared that the airplane was not American but it hosted American personnel.
