Pakistan on Tuesday test-fired its third nuclear capable missile in 11 days, the army announced.

"Pakistan carried out another successful test-fire of its indigenously developed medium range surface-to-surface ballistic missile Hatf IV," an army spokesman told a news agency.

The missile, also known as Shaheen I, was already tested last week.

"The test concludes for now the series of planned tests, which started on October 3," the spokesman added.

However a longer-range version of the Hatf series would be tested in the future, he added, without specifying when.
