U.S. Air Force test-launches previously banned missile over Pacific: DOD
American missile launch likely violates INF Treaty that Trump left in August, analysts say

The U.S. Air Force tested a previously banned ballistic missile over the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday, according to an announcement from the Department of Defense.

The Pentagon described the weapon as a "conventionally-configured ground-launched ballistic missile," and analysts say that the projectile likely would be barred under a Cold War-era arms control agreement that the U.S. left over the summer.
