New information gleaned from U.S. spy drone: Iranian minister

New information has been obtained from an advanced U.S. spy drone that Iran brought down in 2011, but the details will not be released to the press, Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said on Sunday. 
Iran announced on December 4, 2011 that an advanced RQ-170 unmanned U.S. spy plane had been brought down by the armed forces of the Islamic Republic but did not say when the incident occurred. 
The commander of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, announced on April 21 that Iran had successfully reverse-engineered the drone.
