Pakistan's military has test-fired a short-range missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead.
The army said the Hataf 2 missile was successfully launched from an undisclosed location.
It said the surface-to-surface missile has a range of 111 miles.
It is the second such test by Pakistan in the past month.
Armies routinely test-fire weapons but Pakistan's programme is watched closely because it is a nuclear-armed nation that has fought three wars with neighbour India since 1947.
