Attack Stops Traffic on NATO Supply Line

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - A supply route in southwest Pakistan
is temporarily closed, after two men on a motorcycle threw a bomb
at a truck carrying an excavating machine to NATO troops in
Afghanistan.
Police say no one was injured in the blast, but the machine was
damaged.
U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan rely heavily on two major
supply routes running through Pakistan. The main one goes through
the Khyber Pass in the northwest, and trucks that use it have
frequently been attacked.
The smaller route, the one where today's attack occurred, has
attracted less attention from militants, but has not been exempt
from violence.
Meanwhile, in the northwest, dozens of assailants opened fire at
a university, killing three police officers and a security guard.
