(Dubai) -- Iran is celebrating the return of its space monkey. President Hassan Rouhani marked the event on Twitter, announcing the monkey named "Fargam" was home "safe an sound" after being launched into space. The country sent another monkey into space in January, which also enjoyed a safe return. This demonstration of Iran's missile power may worry the West and some Gulf states, which are concerned over Iran's nuclear ambitions.
