KP stops 45 Nato containers from entering province

Published: June 23, 2010

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa administration has barred 45 Nato containers from entering the province due to security concerns.

The containers were stopped near Attock, at the northern border of Punjab. Their entry into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was barred after the provincial administration received intelligence reports claiming the containers were under threat of a militant attack.

Attacks on Nato containers supplying goods to forces fighting militancy in Afghanistan have been quite frequent in the past.
