An Iranian exile group claimed Monday that Tehran is hiding more than 300 long-range missiles in two Iranian towns and that North Korean weapons experts are aiding the country in their missile production. The group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, claimed that an increase of production of the warhead-carrying missiles is "taking the international community to the brink and are leading the developments to war." The group claims North Korean experts in guidance systems, warhead production, missile fuel systems and explosion and blast systems are working with Iranian officials at the Hemmat Missile Industries Complex, northeast of Tehran, to develop a new ballistic missile with a range of 3,000 kilometers (1,900 miles). The North Koreans worked with Iran on another, US$1 billion (570 million pounds, 830 million euro) missile project up until this summer, the group claims, when two tests for a long-range missile, the Shihab 4, failed and the project was scrapped.
