Pakistan test fires 700 km range Hatf-VII nuke missile

Pakistan today successfully test fired the nuclear-capable Hatf-VII cruise missile with a range of 700 km, the latest in a series of tests of missiles that can hit targets deep within India.

The military said the test, conducted at an undisclosed location, was successful.

This was the fifth missile test by Pakistan since late last month.

"The test will consolidate Pakistan's strategic deterrence capability and further strengthen national security," the military said in a statement.

The military described the Hatf-VII or Babur as an indigenously developed multi-tube cruise missile system.
