Pakistan successfully test-fired on Thursday a nuclear-capable cruise missile with the capability to avoid radar detection, the military said. The missile, named Babur or Hatf VII, has a range of 700 kilometers and is capable of carrying various types of warheads, including nuclear, the military-run Inter-Services Public Relations Directorate said. "The test is part of Pakistan's ongoing efforts at consolidating its strategic capability and strengthening national security," the directorate said in a statement. "Babur was tested successfully with new technical parameters and enhanced edge," said Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad, the top army spokesman.
