INDIA SUCCESSFULLY TEST-FIRES NUCLEAR-CAPABLE ICBM.

India has successfully test-fired its nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile

(ICBM), the Indian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

According to the statement, the Agni-5 ICBM was fired from Abdul Kalam island off the coast

of the eastern state of Odisha at around 9:53 a.m. local time on January 18. The ICBM

allegedly has the range of 5,000 km, the longest-range in its class in the country. The

ICBM is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead of about 1.5 tonnes and can be deployed on

mobile launchers.

According to reports, the ICBM flew for 19 minutes and covered 4,900 km before it hit the

intended target in an undisclosed area.
