India tests interceptor missile

If successful, the short-range Prithvi missiles will provide an air-shield to Indian cities.

    The missile tests came after a recent round of peace talks between India and Pakistan

    The competing missile tests came after the countries concluded a crucial round of peace talks in New Delhi aimed at resolving their differences.

    Both countries routinely test-fire missiles and usually inform each other of the tests ahead of time .

    The Prithvi II has a range of 250km and can be fitted with a nuclear or conventional payload of up to 500kg.
