Iran has test fired medium-range misiles, state TV reported on Monday, a day after the Islamic Republic's elite Revolutionary Guards launched short-range missiles as part of several days of war games.

"Iran test fires medium-range missiles," English-language Press TV said in a scrolling news headline, giving no further detail on the type of missiles or when the test took place.

The missile manoeuvres coincide with increased tension in Iran's nuclear dispute with the West, after last week's disclosure by Tehran that it is building a second uranium enrichment plant.
