'Missile strike' claim sparks scare

Iranian state television sparked an international scare and sent the price of oil rising when it claimed a missile had been fired from an aircraft close to its nuclear reactor.

A later report said that the explosion near the city of Dailam may have been caused by a fuel tank falling from an Iranian plane.

Al-Alam television originally said: "A powerful explosion was heard this morning on the outskirts of Dailam in the Bushehr province. Witnesses said that the missile was fired from an unknown plane 20 kilometres from the city."

The report came after an earlier claim by Iran that unmanned US drones had been flying over its nuclear sites.

they just might be there own worst enemy
