ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan test-fired on Wednesday a nuclear-capable, surface-to-surface ballistic missile, capable of hitting targets deep inside arch-rival India.
The military said Pakistan had informed neighboring countries about the test -- a practice also observed by India, which regularly tests its own nuclear-capable missiles.
"Pakistan today carried out a successful test fire of its indigenously developed, medium-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile, Hatf-IV Shaheen-I," it said in a statement.
"The missile is capable of reaching targets up to 700 kms (430 miles) and can carry nuclear and other types of warheads," it said.
On Nov 29, Pakistan test-fired a short-range, nuclear capable Hatf-III Ghaznavi with a range of 290 km (181 m

Pakistanis have yet to make their minds up about what the partial Indian troop withdrawal from disputed Kashmir means for prospects of lasting peace in the subcontinent.
Does it amount to the most dramatic breakthrough to date, since Pakistan's President, Pervez Musharraf, and the then Indian premier, Atal Behari Vajpayee, vowed in January to work towards a solution to the 57-year-old dispute?
Or is it a calculated move by the Indian government to provide some relief to battle-weary Kashmiris without actually addressing any of the substantive points of disagreement with Pakistan?
President Pervez Musharraf's radical proposals to bring an end to the long-festering Kashmir dispute with India have taken people on both sides of the border by surprise.
