The Iranian military is to stage war games, in which they will practise blockading one of the world's most important oil trading routes in the Gulf.

"Soon we will hold a military manoeuvre on how to close the Strait of Hormuz," Parviz Sarvari of Iran's National Security Committee told the ISNA news agency. "If the world wants to make the region insecure, we will make the world insecure."
