Iran tests new medium-range ballistic missile
State television flashed images of the Khoramshahr missile's disengaging warhead, calling it the country's third such missile capable of traveling some 2,000 kilometers.
The missile test comes days after U.S. President Donald Trump sharply criticized Iran in his address to the United Nations General Assembly, denouncing the landmark 2015 nuclear deal reached between Tehran and six world powers including the US.
President Hassan Rouhani vowed that his country would continue to bolster its ballistic-missile program, amid rising tensions with the US. ■
