US tests ground-launched ballistic missile over Pacific

The US on Thursday test-launched a new ballistic missile from Vandenburg Air Force Base in California — a test that was previously banned by an arms-control treaty from which President Trump withdrew this year. The test was the second of a ground-launched, medium-range nuclear-capable missile since Washington exited the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Moscow.
