Pakistan plans test of long-range missile

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, April 24 (UPI) — Pakistan has asked India to keep commercial aircraft out of an area over the Indian Ocean while it conducts a long-range missile test.

The announcement came five days after India successfully launched an intercontinental ballistic missile, Asian News International reported. The test of the Agni V missile ushered India into the small group of countries that have ICBM capability.

Pakistan’s test is to be done in the next five days, officials say.
