(CNN) -- Pakistan detonated three nuclear devices on Thursday and said it
was ready to adapt a nuclear warhead to a newly tested long-range missile.

The detonations in a remote western region of Pakistan occurred about 3:30
p.m. (1030 GMT/6:30 a.m. EDT) and come in response to the testing of five
nuclear devices by neighboring India earlier this month.
