US Calls For Iran To Stop Firing Missiles

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is calling on Iran to refrain
from conducting any more missile tests.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon is studying today's missile test to
figure out exactly what was launched and what it shows about
Tehran's missile capabilities.
Defense officials say an early assessment shows that U.S.
tracking systems detected seven missile launches. Officials note
that the test came during Iran's "Noble Prophet" exercise -- an
exercise also held twice in 2006, each time including multiple
missile launches.
On Capitol Hill, Undersecretary of State William Burns says Iran
is trying to foster the perception that its nuclear program is
advancing.
But in prepared testimony for the House Foreign Affairs
Committee, Burns says Iran's "real progress has been more
modest."
