ISLAMABAD (AFX) - Pakistan today successfully test-fired its first ever ground-launched cruise missile, which is capable of carrying nuclear warheads, the military said in a statement.
The launch of the Hatf VII Babur comes days after Pakistan and India, seeking to prevent an accidental nuclear exchange, agreed to notify each other before missile tests and to set up a hotline between their foreign secretaries.
The missile could reach targets up to 500 kilometres away, the military said.
