Pakistan successfully performs first launch of missile from sub. Eyes turn to India

Pakistan has successfully tested its first submarine-launched cruise missile, the country's military says.

The Babur-3 missile, which has a range of 450km (280 miles), could carry a nuclear warhead, a spokesman confirmed to the AFP news agency.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said the test showed Pakistan's technological progress and self-reliance.

However, analysts say the development could further heighten tensions with neighbouring India.
