China successfully carries out interceptor missile test

BEIJING (PTI): China has successfully carried out its second interceptor missile test as part of its efforts to build a missile shield to intercept incoming warheads.

China again carried out a land-based mid-course missile interception test within its territory on Sunday; state-run Xinhua news agency quoted the Information Bureau of China's Defence Ministry as saying.

"The test has reached the preset goal," an official with the bureau said.

"The test is defensive in nature and targets no other country," he said.

According to the bureau, this is the second time China announced such missile test.

A similar anti-missile interception test was successfully conducted on January 11, 2010, the Xinhua report said.

Although no other detailed information about the test was released from the military authorities, weapon system experts said such test could build shield for China's air defence by intercepting incoming warheads such as ballistic missiles in space, the Xinhua report stated.
