TEHRAN, July 20 (Reuters) - Iran said on Sunday its Revolutionary Guards had been armed with a new medium-range missile, which analysts say could hit Israel or U.S. bases in the Middle East, after successful tests of the weapon.

The deployment of the Shahab-3 missile, announced by state television, comes as Iran faces mounting scrutiny about a nuclear energy programme which Washington says may be a front for a covert bid to make atomic arms.

State television showed Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who heads Iran's Islamic power structure, attending a military parade where at least one Shahab-3 was on display.

Iran announced earlier this month it had successfully completed tests on the Shahab-3, which analysts say is based on the North Korean Nodong-1 missile but has been improved with Russian technology. Its range is about 1,300 km (800 miles).

1. This article has a lot of dubious assertions
...and innuendo about another "nuclear weapons program."
