Pakistan said it had successfully test fired a short-range nuclear-capable ballistic missile.

The military said the Hatf IX has a range of only 60 kilometres and can carry conventional warheads.

It was the third time Pakistan has test fired a ballistic missile since arch-rival India last month launched its new long-range Agni V, capable of hitting targets anywhere in China.

India and Pakistan -- which have fought three wars since independence from Britain in 1947 -- have routinely carried out missile tests since both demonstrated nuclear weapons capability in 1998.
