NATO Supplies Attacked in Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) - A witness and a police officer say
militants have attacked a terminal for trucks carrying supplies to
US and NATO troops in Afghanistan.
The attack early Monday was the second on Afghan-bound military
supplies in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar in as many
days.
A security guard at the al-Fasil terminal on the outskirts of
the city says up to 50 armed people entered the termimal.
He says they threw gasoline over 10 container trucks carrying
supplies and then set off explosions.
Rising militant attacks are raising doubts about the reliability
of critical supply routes through Pakistan, prompting the U.S. and
NATO to seek alternatives.
