Pakistan military tests missile

Pakistan says it has successfully tested a short-range missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. A statement from Pakistan's armed forces said the test-firing proved the weapon had met its design parameters.

The Hatf-II Abdali surface-to-surface ballistic missile is said to have a range of 200km (125 miles). Last week Pakistan test fired a nuclear-capable, surface-to-surface Hatf VI missile, which has a much longer potential range of 2,000 km.
