India today carried out a successful launch of the surface-to-surface ballistic missile Agni-5.

The launch took place at approximately 1950 hrs from APJ Abdul Kalam Island, Odisha, an official press release said.

The missile, which uses a three-stage solid fuelled engine, is capable of striking targets at ranges up to 5,000 kilometres with a very high degree of accuracy, the release said.
