Toyako, Japan (AP) The White House says it's not the way for Iran to “gain the trust of the world.”

A spokesman says Iran's test of some medium-and-long-range missiles today will only further isolate Iranians from the international community.

Iran test-fired nine missiles during war games near the Strait of Hormuz, including the Shahab-3, with a range of over 1,200 miles. Iran says the war games are aimed at showing Iran can retaliate against any U.S. or Israeli attack.

The price of oil rebounded on the news of the Iranian missile test, after falling more than $5 a barrel yesterday.
