Pakistan on Wednesday successfully test-fired a new version of its nuclear-capable missile, military and defense officials said. The medium range ballistic missile Hatf IV (Shaheen-I) had a range of 700 kilometers (435 miles), a Pakistan military statement said. However, it didn't give any details about the area from where the missile was test fired, but a defense official said the missile - which had the ability to carry nuclear warheads - hit its target. On Tuesday, India carried out its first successful test interception of a ballistic missile, using a second missile to shoot down an incoming rocket, the defense ministry said. If the interceptor missile, the medium-range and nuclear-capable Prithvi II, can be transformed into a viable defense system, it would push India into an elite club of nations with working missile shields.
