DUBAI - Iran denied on Thursday that its Revolutionary Guards launched rockets near the US aircraft-carrier Harry S. Truman and other warships as they were entering the Gulf on Saturday, rejecting a US report as "psychological warfare."

"The naval forces of the Guards have not had any exercises in the Strait of Hormuz during the past week and the period claimed by the Americans, for them to have launched missiles and rockets," the Revolutionary Guards website quoted Ramezan Sharif, the Guard's spokesman, as saying."The publication of such false news under the present circumstances is akin to psychological warfare," Sharif said.
