Iran test fires more missiles

Middle East problems grow as days go by:

The weapons have “special capabilities” and included missiles launched from naval ships in the Persian Gulf, along with torpedoes and surface-to-surface missiles, the broadcast said. It did not elaborate.

A brief video clip showed two missiles being fired simultaneously in the darkness.

The report came hours after Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned Iran that Washington will not back down in the face of threats against Israel.

“We are sending a message to Iran that we will defend American interests and the interests of our allies,” Rice said Thursday in Georgia at the close of a three-day Eastern European trip.

Apparently, Iran has manipulated one photo in which only appeared three missiles. After the manipulation, four missiles appear.

Meanwhile, French oil company Total has quitted Iran gas deal, because it is too risky, politically speaking, his head, Christophe de Margerie, told The Financial Times in an interview.
