ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan's military says it has test-fired a short-range missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead.
The army statement said the "Hataf 2" missile was successfully launched from an undisclosed location on Friday.
It said the surface-to-surface missile has a range of 111 miles (180 kilometers).
It is the second such test by Pakistan in the past month.
Armies routinely test-fire weapons but Pakistan's program is watched closely because it is a nuclear-armed nation that has fought three wars with neighbor India since 1947.
