U.S. missile defence test fails

The first full test in nearly two years of a multibillion-dollar U.S. anti-missile shield failed Wednesday when one missile launched but a second shut down before leaving the ground, the Pentagon says.
The Missile Defence Agency has tried to do the $85-million US test several times this month, but it’s aborted each attempt before launch due to weather or technical glitches.
