Iran satellite launch, which U.S. warned against, fails

Iran's bid to launch a satellite has failed, Telecoms Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi said on Tuesday, after it ignored US warnings to avoid such activity.

Washington warned Tehran this month against undertaking three planned space rocket launches that it said would violate a UN Security Council resolution because they use ballistic missile technology.
