China says it has successfully tested new type of missile

China’s defense ministry says the military has successfully test-fired a new type of missile into waters near the Korean Peninsula. The test came amid Chinese anger over the deployment in South Korea of a sophisticated US missile defense system that Beijing opposes because its radars are allegedly capable of peering deep into China to detect rocket launches and aircraft movements. The defence ministry said last month it would respond by continuing to test new types of weapons under conditions simulating actual combat.
