(BBC) India has successfully launched a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile able to carry a nuclear warhead, officials say.
The Agni-V missile was launched from a site off India's east coast and took 20 minutes to hit its target somewhere near Indonesia in the Indian Ocean.
The missile has a range of more than 5,000km (3,100 miles), potentially bringing targets in China within range.
If it is confirmed as a successful test, India would join an elite nuclear club of China, Russia, France, the US and UK which have such long-range missiles. Israel is also thought to possess them.
