Iran has successfully test-fired a medium-range surface-to-air missile during military exercises in the Gulf, the official Irna news agency has reported.

Iranian naval commander, Mahmoud Mousavi, was quoted as saying the missile was equipped with the "latest technology" and "intelligent systems".

The BBC's Mohsen Asgari reports from Tehran, as pictures from Iranian state TV apparently showed the missile launch.
