Pakistan test-fires nuclear-capable missile

Published: 11.28.12, 10:03 / Israel News

Pakistan's military says it has successfully test-fired a medium-range ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. A military statement says the Hatf V or Ghauri missile was launched Wednesday from an undisclosed location.


It says the missile can carry both conventional and nuclear warheads over a distance of 1,300 kilometers (810 miles). Pakistan has previously test-fired this same missile. The country became a declared nuclear power in 1998, when it conducted underground nuclear tests in response to those carried out by its archenemy and neighbor, India. (AP)
