India Successfully Tests Nuclear-Capable Missile
India has successfully launched a long-range missile able to carry a nuclear warhead; it gives the country, for the first time, the capability of striking the major Chinese cities of Beijing and Shanghai.
(BBC NEWS) New Delhi - 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.
It is still unclear if it reached the 5,000km range India was hoping for.
