Pakistan tests nuclear-capable ballistic missile

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan successfully test-fired a nuclear-capable ballistic missile on Wednesday that can hit targets up to 1,300 km (807 miles) away, the military said.
Pakistan's Hatf-V is a medium-range ballistic missile, capable of reaching targets in India.
"The test consolidates and strengthens Pakistan's deterrence capability and national security," the military said in a release.
Pakistan and India have been developing missiles of varying ranges since they conducted nuclear tests in May 1998.
US intelligence estimates last year put the number of nuclear weapons developed by Pakistan at 90 to 110. Analysts say its nuclear arsenal is the fastest growing in the world.
