Iran has announced a new version of a short range surface-to-surface ballistic missile, the Fateh-110 or Conqueror.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled the upgraded weapon yesterday, just weeks after it was test-fired.

He said Iran was seeking to develop its defence capabilities "not in an aggressive context, but as a deterrence".

Speaking at a ceremony to unveil the upgraded Fateh-110, President Ahmadinejad said Iran only sought to "defend itself".
