India Tests Nuclear-Capable Missile Able to Hit China

India said on Thursday that it successfully tested a long-range, nuclear-capable missile, which would give the country the ability to strike targets as far away as Beijing and Shanghai, The New York Times reported.

The launching of the missile, called Agni 5, would put India in the company of a small group of countries with long-range capabilities that includes China, Britain, France, Russia and the United States.

 

The missile, which was tested on an island off India’s east coast, has a range of 3,100 miles. Last year, India tested a missile with a range of 1,800 miles. The country has a “no first use” policy.
