US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has warned Iran that the United States will not back down in the face of Iranian threats against Israel. Iranian officials have strongly suggested the country's missile test on Wednesday was itself a warning to Israel not to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. Rice said Thursday, at the close of a three-day Eastern European trip, that the US would defend its interests and allies.
