Pakistan carried out a succcessful test of its domestically-produced Raad (Hatf 8) nuclear-capable cruise missile on Thursday, Pakistan's GEO-TV reported.

According to local media, Raad is an air-launched cruise missile capable of destroying targets up to 350 km away, and uses stealth technology to avoid radar detection.
