WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. warship failed to intercept a medium-range ballistic missile test target on Saturday, the U.S. Missile Defense Agency said.

"The objective of the test was to demonstrate the capability of a ballistic missile defense-configured Aegis ship to detect, track, engage and intercept a medium-range ballistic missile target" with a salvo of two Standard Missile-6 (SM-6) Dual II missiles, the agency said in a statement.

"However, an intercept was not achieved," it said without giving further details. It did not say where the test was conducted.

3. The bad news keeps coming ...

US tells Russia it won’t rejoin Open Skies arms control pact. U.S. violated the Treaty with sweeping restrictions on observation flights over Alaska, and Russia notably over its westernmost Kaliningrad region.
