    The United States has called for Iran to be held accountable after Tehran successfully launched its first military satellite.

    Iran's Revolutionary Guard says it will allow it to "monitor the world from space".

    The military satellite called Nour - meaning "light" in Farsi - launched from Iran's Markazi Desert on Wednesday.

    The US has in the past said the space programme was a cover for missile development, which Iran's leaders deny.
