Khyber impasse as Afghan trail hit by militants

An armed gang carried out the first attack on a secondary southern supply route for foreign troops in Afghanistan, as thousands of truck drivers continue to boycott the main route through the Khyber Pass.

Police said yesterday that at least three gunmen attacked a fuel tanker bound for Afghanistan on Tuesday just east of the Pakistani city of Quetta, shooting and wounding the driver and spilling 60,000litres of fuel.
