Pakistan on Wednesday successfully test-fired Shaheen-III surface-to-surface ballistic missile, having a range of 2,750 kilometers.
The report by an independent panel of experts monitoring U.N. sanctions said the countries, which it did not identify, believed North Korea’s past six nuclear tests had likely helped it develop miniaturized nuclear devices
North Korean tests are “unnecessarily provocative and do not set the stage for diplomacy, said Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman.
North Korea fired what appeared to be a submarine-launched ballistic missile, Seoul said Wednesday, just days before Washington and Pyongyang were set to resume long-stalled nuclear talks.
The official Twitter handle of Director General of Inter-Service Public Relations (DGISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted out a video of a successful night launch of Pakistan's Ghaznavi, ballistic missile, ARY News reported on Thursday.
Shaheen-II Missile is capable of carrying both conventional and nuclear warheads up to a range of 1,500 kilometers.
Second phase of the exercise was aimed at testing the extreme in-flight maneuverability including the end flight maneuverability

WASHINGTON: An alert warning of an incoming ballistic missile aimed at Hawaii was sent in error Saturday, sowing panic and confusion across the US state, which is already on edge over the risk of attack, before officials dubbed it a "false alarm." Emergency management officials eventually determined the notification was sent just after 8:00 am (1800 GMT) during a shift change and a drill after "the wrong button was pushed" -- a mistake that lit up phones across the archipelago with a disturbing alert urging people to…
Saudi Arabia may have missed Huthi missile with interceptors from US-made Patriot defense system: report
WASHINGTON: When Huthi rebels blasted a ballistic missile from Yemen toward the Saudi capital last month, Riyadh officials said they had intercepted and destroyed the incoming rocket. But in an analysis published Monday by the New York Times, an arms expert and a research team examined photo and video evidence and found that Saudi Arabia may actually have missed the missile with interceptors from a US-made Patriot defense system. The November 4 attack was the first missile Shiite rebels had aimed at the heart of the…
