Amer­ica has is­sued warn­ings over Iran test-fir­ing bal­lis­tic mis­siles ca­pa­ble of car­ry­ing mul­ti­ple war­heads.

US Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo last night called on lead­ers to “cease these ac­tiv­i­ties” and is­sued a state­ment say­ing he “con­demns these acts”. Amer­ica has ac­cused Iran of break­ing UN peace codes is­sued to pre­vent the pro­lif­er­a­tion of weapons.

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump tore up the 2015 nu­clear deal with Iran and six global pow­ers to the dis­may of the UK and oth­ers ear­lier this year.
