Brazil selling 100 missiles to Pakistan

Brazil's defense minister says his nation is selling 100 aircraft-borne missiles to Pakistan. Brazilian officials approved the $107 million sale of the missiles, which can be installed on jets and used to take out radar installations. Brazilian news media say Brazil's air force negotiated the sale with Pakistan's government. The deal needed the approval of Brazil's trade ministry, which signed off on the deal on Tuesday. The Brazilian arms maker Mectron will make the missiles. Brazil has been trying to bolster its defense industry, which was the largest in the developing world 20 years ago. The industry has struggled since the end of the Cold War.
