Iran conducting secret ballistic missile tests

BRITAIN’S foreign secretary says Iran has conducted covert tests of ballistic missiles alongside a 10-day program of public military manoeuvres.

William Hague told the House of Commons today that there had been secret experiments with missiles and rocket launchers.

Iran is conducting 10 days of war games in an apparent show of strength to the West and yesterday fired 14 missiles in public tests.

Britain believes Tehran has conducted at least three secret tests of medium-range ballistic missiles since October.

Iran and the West remain in dispute over its nuclear program. The US and its allies insist it is aimed at developing atomic weapons – a charge Iran rejects.
