Pakistan tests two nuclear missiles

A day after Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, half jokingly warned Pakistan of "severe consequences" if Pakistani terrorists will successfully attack the US, Pakistan tested two missile capable of carrying nuke warheads.


ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan successfully test-fired two ballistic missiles Saturday capable of carrying nuclear warheads, the military said, as the Islamic nation's leader urged the world to recognize it as a legitimate nuclear power.

The Shaheen-1 missile has a range of about 400 miles (650 kilometers), while the second Ghaznavi missile could hit targets at a distance of 180 miles (290 kilometers), an army statement said. Both can carry conventional and nuclear warheads.
