U.S. Shoots Down Cruise Missile in Defense Test

                                 WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States shot down a
cruise missile with
                                 a Patriot PAC-3 missile over New Mexico Saturday in
a successful test of its
                                 'theater' defense program to protect troops and
bases from attack, the
                                 Pentagon said. It was the fourth successful
'hit-to-kill' intercept in a row and
                                 the first against a low-flying cruise missile for
the upgraded version of the
                                 Patriot, which was used against Iraqi Scud missiles
in the Gulf War. The
                                 PAC-3 had earlier hit three Hera ballistic missiles
at the edge of space.
