Pakistan successfully test-fired a new version of its short-range nuclear-capable missile on Saturday, a military statement said. The ballistic missile Hatf III (Ghazanvi) - launched from an undisclosed location - has a range of 290 kilometers (180 miles) and hit its target, the statement said. Pakistan routinely test-fires upgraded versions of its missiles. The latest, the third in as many weeks, was part of training exercises by the Pakistan army's Strategic Force Command, the statement said. The army tested medium range Ghauri and Shaheen-1 missiles last month.
