In a very tense time, Iran decides to launch war games.
It was the second such display of military might in less than a month.
The maneuvers by Iran's regular navy, due to last eight days in the waterway crucial for global oil supplies, coincided with rising tension in

work the West suspects is aimed at making bombs. Iran denies the charge.
