A new missile which uses electromagnetic pulses to target buildings can permanently shut down a country’s electronics without harming people, Boeing has claimed.

The Unites States aircraft manufacturer claims to have successfully tested the weapon on a one-hour flight during which it knocked out the computers of an entire military compound in the Utah desert.

It’s thought the missile could penetrate the bunkers and caves believed to be hiding Iran’s alleged nuclear facilities, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported.
