TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian state radio says Tehran will give the United States a model of the American surveillance drone captured by the Islamic Republic.

The report Tuesday said the toy model of the RQ-170 Sentinel stealth drone will be sent to the White House in response to a formal request from Washington last month asking Iran to return the aircraft that went down over Iran in December.

State radio said the model will be one eightieth the size of the original aircraft. The report says the models also will be sold on the Iranian market for about 70,000 rials, or around $4.

The Obama administration has asked Iran to return the drone which Tehran says it detected over the eastern part of Iran some 140 miles (225 kilometers) from the Afghan border.
