India tests nuclear-capable Agni-I missile

The Defense ministry of India said Friday that it has successfully tested a short-range version of its most powerful nuclear-capable missile Friday.

The Agni-I missile, which can travel up to 700 kilometers (435 miles), soared into the sky over the Bay of Bengal from Wheeler's Island off India's east coast.

The test was "successful and the desired objectives have been met," the defense ministry said in a statement.

This is the fourth time the same missile has been tested to fine-tune its use and improve its maneuverability, said a defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
