Iran test-fires improved Sejil 2 missile

Iran has successfully test-fired a long-range, improved Sejil 2 missile, state television reported on Wednesday.

Al Alam, Iran's Arabic-language satellite television, said the Sejil missile had a longer range than the Shahab missile, which Iranian officials in the past have said can reach targets 2,000 km (1,250 miles) away.

Press TV, Iran's English-language television station, said about Wednesday's test: "The missile hit its target."

Al Alam said it was a two-stage, solid fuel missile.
