TEHRAN (AP): Iran said on Saturday that it has successfully test-fired an upgraded version of a short-range ballistic missile.

Defence Minister Gen Ahmad Vahidi said the solid-fueled Fateh-110 has a range of 300 kilometers and it is capable of pin-pointing targets at sea, making it the most accurate weapon of its kind in Iran's arsenal.

Iran has been pushing to upgrade its missiles, which already can target Israel and other parts of the region.

Officials say that they are focusing on missiles that can strike naval targets.

The Fateh-110, or Conqueror, is a single-stage solid-propellant, surface-to-surface missile put into service in 2002. The earlier version of the domestically-produced missile had a range of 200 kilometers.

Vahidi's comments were reported by state TV on Saturday. The weapon was developed by Iran's Aerospace Industries Organisation.
