US sends missile system and ship to Middle East as Iran tensions escalate

The US is sending a Patriot air defence missile system and a warship to the Middle East amid escalating tensions with Iran.

The Pentagon said US B-52 bombers have also arrived at a base in Qatar.

It said the moves were a response to threats of possible operations against US forces in the region by Iran.
