Iran has displayed parts of its new Russian-made air defence system during its Army Day celebrations.

Pictures released by the semi-official ISNA news agency showed S-300 missile tubes and radar equipment during a military parade in southern Tehran.

Iran insists the system is necessary to defend itself, but the US and Israel have criticized the sale.

The controversial contract got the go-ahead after last year's deal to lift international sanctions on Iran.
