US says Iran got missile boost from North Korea

The suspected shipment – mentioned among the flood of classified State Department memos obtained by the online whistle-blower WikiLeaks – could also give Iran an important boost toward joining the powerful group of nations with intercontinental ballistic missiles, defense experts said Monday. (AP)
