BEIJING - China tested emerging military technology aimed at destroying missiles in mid-air after an initial test in 2010, state media said on Sunday, in a move that will unnerve its neighbors.

A brief report by the official Xinhua news agency said the military carried out a "land-based mid-course missile interception test within its territory"."The test has reached the pre-set goal," the report quoted an unnamed Defense Ministry official as saying. "The test is defensive in nature and targets no other country."



It did not specify whether any missile or object had been destroyed in the test.
