New Delhi, Apr 7 (EFE).- India on the weekend successfully tested the ground-to-ground Agni II ballistic missile, which has a range of more than 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles) and can carry a nuclear warhead, authorities said.
The test took place on Sunday at the installation that the Defence Research and Development Organisation, or DRDO, has on Wheeler Island, in eastern Odisha state and the frequent site for this type of testing.
"The launch was successful. All objectives were achieved," a top DRDO official, MVKV Prasad, told the local PTI news agency.
