The US Ambassador to the UN displays ‘undeniable’ evidence of an Iranian missile fired at Saudi Arabia by fighters in Yemen.
Nikki Haley says the missile parts point to Iran’s violation of an international arms agreement. Iran says the allegations are ‘unfounded, irresponsible and provocative’.
Iran’s foreign minister has compared Haley’s presentation with another by former US Secretary of State Colin Powell.
His infamous speech at the UN Security Council in 2003 about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction turned out to be false.
Haley says the White House plans to rally international support to crack down on Iran.
