Pakistan 'successfully tests' missile in Arabian Sea


Pakistan's navy announced it had successfully test-fired a series of missiles and torpedoes in what it called "a message of deterrence to anyone harbouring nefarious designs" against the country.

Video released by the Pakistani Navy appeared to show a test missile being fired at a ship in the Arabian Sea.

Both India and Pakistan regularly test their missile systems, and usually notify each other ahead of such launches in keeping with a diplomatic agreement.
