Pakistan tested a fifth nuclear-capable missile since India launched a new long-range weapon capable of hitting China just over six weeks ago.

The Hatf VII cruise missile has a range of 700 kilometres, can carry conventional warheads and has stealth capabilities.

Today's test was Pakistan's fifth of a nuclear-capable missile since April 25.

On April 20, India successfully test fired the Agni V capable of delivering a one-tonne nuclear warhead anywhere in rival China, marking a major advance in its military capabilities.
