Iran says fires missiles into Indian Ocean

Tehran, July 9, 2011

Iran said on Saturday it test-fired two long-range missiles into the Indian Ocean earlier this year, the first time it has fired missiles into that sea, according to state television.

'In the month of Bahman (Jan 21-Feb 19) two missiles with a range of 1,900 km were fired from Semnan province (in northern Iran) into the mouth of the Indian Ocean,' Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division, told a news conference some of which was shown on television. -Reuters
