Iran fires missiles in new round of war games

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's Revolutionary Guards test fired missiles on Monday at the start of three days of military exercises that will be staged across the country, the second round of manoeuvres this month, state media reported.
Earlier in February, the Guards air and naval forces held military manoeuvres in the Gulf with one commander saying missiles that could sink "big warships" had been tested.
Iran is at loggerheads with the United States over its nuclear program and what Washington calls Tehran's meddling in Iraq. Washington has sent a second aircraft carrier to the Gulf but U.S. officials say they are not planning a war.
The war-games which began on Monday are being staged by the Guards' ground forces in 16 provinces, state media reported.
