He added, however, that the surface-to-ship missiles would not be fired against vessels in the gulf "except for an untoward incident instigated by an enemy," IRNA reported. Iran reportedly has Chinese- made Silkworm anti-ship missiles with a range of SO miles positioned on the northern side of the Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the gulf.

Levine intervened in today's session after Demjanjuk toid the prosecutor: "I know one of my problems is I don't understand you, and you don't understand me," Levine rebuked the defendant, saying, "You just don't want to answer the question." The exchange followed questions by Shaked to Demjanjuk about whether the defendant saw Russian officers forcing freed Soviet prisoners to return to the Soviet Union after the war. Demjanjuk hit claimed he lied about hit Russian part on United Nations refugee forms and a 1951 immigration document to the United States so that he would not be forcibly repatriated to the Soviet Union, Demjaniuk was extradited to Israel in February 1986.
