Iran continues naval drill
NBC News — Iran's ten day naval drill continued tuesday in international waters beyond the strategic Strait of Hormuz. The drill started on saturday. It's Iran's latest show of strength in the face of mounting international pressure over its nuclear program.
The Strait of Hormuz is at the mouth of the Persian Gulf and is the passageway for about a third of the world's oil tanker traffic. There is concern that Iran would try to close the strait if it became involved in a military conflict.
