Russian officials say their navy successfully test fired a long range ballistic missile on Friday.

Officials say the experimental Bulava was launched from a submarine underwater in the White Sea.

They say the missile hit its target in the Kamchatka Peninsula some 6,000 kilometers away.

Friday's launch marked the third successful test firing of a Bulava missile this year in Russia's Far East.

The missile has the ability carry multiple warheads.
