Iran says it has manufactured laser-guided artillery shells able to locate and hit moving targets with a high degree of precision.

The claim comes as tension rises over Tehran’s nuclear programme which the US and its allies suspect has military aims, something Iran denies.

With the 33rd anniversary of its Islamic Revolution approaching, senior Iranian commander General Masoud Jazayeri said: “We hope to be able to unveil satellites and satellite carrier missiles in the next 10 days.”

UN nuclear inspectors are in Iran which has suggested it could fight sanctions with sanctions by stopping oil exports to certain countries.
