ISLAMABAD - Pakistan test fired a nuclear-capable, short-range, surface-to-surface missile on Friday, the military said.

The Hatf-2 ballistic missile can travel up to 180 km (110 miles).

"Hatf-2 can carry nuclear as well as conventional warheads with high accuracy," the military said in a statement, adding the test had been successful.

Pakistan carried out nuclear tests in May 1998 just days after similar tests by its old rival India.

The two carry out missile tests regularly and Friday's exercise was not expected to lead to any increase in tension between them.
