Pakistan navy conducts missile tests


Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistan's navy said it test-fired missiles in the Arabian Sea on Friday to send a message to "anyone harboring nefarious designs" against the country.

The test of "strike capability" is a show of force to Pakistan's enemies, the navy said in a news release.

It included anti-surface and air-to-surface missiles, as well as missiles fired from a submarine.

"While reassuring Pakistan navy's commitment of defending the motherland, this strike capability would also send a message of deterrence to anyone harboring nefarious designs against Pakistan," the statement said.
