Blast at strategic crossing on Pak-Afghan border
Islamabad: Two persons were injured and more
than 20 tankers and containers ferrying supplies to NATO
forces in Afghanistan were damaged in an explosion at a border
crossing in Pakistan`s Balochistan province on Sunday.
Reports said the blast was caused by an explosive device
attached to one of the tankers parked near the Chaman border
crossing on the Afghan frontier.
The Chaman post is one of two major crossing points used
by convoys carrying supplies for the US and NATO forces in
Afghanistan. The troops get about 75 per cent of their
supplies through Pakistan.
The Chaman crossing was closed two days ago owing to a
dispute between Afghan and Pakistani customs officers. Over
1,000 trucks and tankers have been unable to cross the border
due to the closure of the crossing.
