Iran has tested new missiles as its armed forces began several days of war games, reports said.

The country's Revolutionary Guards fired two short-range missiles and a multiple missile launcher, the Reuters news agency quoted state television as saying.

The force said "the drill aims to maintain and boost the country's armed forces deterrent capabilities".

Commander of the Guards, Hossein Salami, was quoted as saying they would "test the long-range Shahab missile" on Monday.

The tests came just a hours after Hilary Clinton welcomed Iran's decision to allow international inspectors into its new nuclear weapons facility.
