Pakistan tests missiles in Arabian Sea

ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan's navy has successfully test-fired a series of missiles and torpedoes in what it is calling a message to "nefarious" forces - an apparent reference to India.

While the two nuclear-armed countries have taken slow steps toward restarting peace talks, both have a history of using weapons tests as a form of diplomatic saber-rattling.

The tests occurred in the Arabian Sea on Friday. Various aircraft, submarines and ships were used. It was not immediately clear if the missiles were capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
