ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Pakistan successfully test-fired a nuclear-capable ballistic missile on Wednesday that can hit targets up to 807 miles away, the military said. Pakistan's Hatf-V is a medium-range ballistic missile, capable of reaching targets in India. Pakistan and India have been developing missiles of varying ranges since they conducted nuclear tests in May 1998. U.S. intelligence estimates last year put the number of nuclear weapons developed by Pakistan at 90 to 110. Analysts say its nuclear arsenal is the fastest growing in the world. Pakistan, like neighboring India, is not a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. It says its nuclear weapons capability is a deterrent against India's much larger conventional military.
