ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s military says it has successfully test-fired a short-range missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead.
A military statement says the Hatf III Ghaznavi missile with a range of 290 km was launched from an undisclosed location.
It says the test was conducted during a field training exercise and that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen. Rashad Mahmood and other officers were present.
Afterward, Mahmood congratulated scientists and engineers involved for the successful launch.
Pakistan routinely test-fires what it claims are indigenously developed missiles.
The international community closely watches its weapons program.
