Iran conducted an unsuccessful test of a version of the North Korean BM-25 Musudan ballistic missile on the evening of July 11-12, according to intelligence sources.  The test, which failed when the missile exploded shortly after liftoff, was conducted near Saman, a site where Iran has conducted missile tests in the past. The effort was at least the fourth time Iran has conducted a missile test since concluding the nuclear agreement in July 2015.  The BM-25 missile has a maximum range of about 2,500 miles.
