Iran said planning to build UAVs for Venezuela

Iran is planning to build unmanned aerial vehicles for Venezuela's military, but they probably will be too small to be armed, Robert Beckhusen reports in Wired's Danger Room.

Air Force Gen. Douglas Fraser, chief of U.S. forces in South America, said the UAVs are to be manufactured in Venezuela with Iranian help and will likely be used for “internal defense,” the article said.

Also, U.S. officials also don’t know if technology acquired from a CIA-operated UAV that crashed in Iran last year has made it into the design, the article continued.
