Further attack on NATO convoy


Militants have mounted another attack on a NATO supply convoy in Pakistan — the seventh in recent days.

On Wednesday night militants opened fire on 30 lorries parked up along a road in the province of Khyber Paktunkwha. They were on their way to Afghanistan.

One truck driver said: “All of it was oil we were taking over to supply NATO. We are always at risk when we go from Karachi through the mountains to Kabul. It is not safe at all and we feel very vulnerable.”

The flames were so fierce, emergency crews have not been able to tell if there were any casualties.
It is hoped the main supply route through the Khyber Pass will soon re-open.

The US has now apologised for a cross-border helicopter attack that killed three Pakistani soldiers.
Islamabad closed the pass in response.
