Rumsfeld won't rule out Iran military option

US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says all possibilities are still open in the dispute over Iran's nuclear program, including military action, a German newspaper reports.

Rumsfeld won't rule out Iran military option

"All options - including the military one - are on the table," the daily Handelsblatt quoted Rumsfeld as saying in an interview.

"Any government that says Israel has no right to exist is making a statement about its possible behaviour in the future," added Rumsfeld, who attended a weekend security conference in Munich, Germany.

At that gathering, Rumsfeld accused Tehran of sponsoring terrorism - a point that he underlined in the Handelsblatt interview.

Iran is the "main sponsor of terrorist organisations such as Hizbollah and Hamas," he was quoted as saying.
