NATO convoys moving again

After 11 days of waiting, supplies for NATO troops are on the move again as hundreds of fuel tankers and container trucks roll through the Torkham border crossing toward the Khyber Pass bound for Afghanistan. Pakistan closed the crossing for NATO trucks after a border incident involving Pakistani troops and a U.S. helicopter on September 30 that left two Pakistani border soldiers dead.

But the closure of this main transit route for NATO goods into Afghanistan has left a huge backlog, and American military vehicles continue to sit out in the open with very little security to protect them from attacks.
