Imran`s party to block NATO supplies

Pak opposition leader Imran Khan said his party`s protest was justified.



Karachi: Pakistani opposition leader and
former cricketer Imran Khan has threatened to block the
Karachi port to disrupt NATO supplies to protest against the
continued US drone attacks in the country`s tribal areas.

Khan, who will lead a sit-in protest on Saturday and
Sunday near the Karachi port against the drone attacks, said
his party`s protest was justified.

"We plan to sit outside the port`s main gates from
Saturday afternoon to Sunday evening to block the trucks
carrying NATO supplies upcountry," he said.

Karachi: Pakistani opposition leader and

Khan, who will lead a sit-in protest on Saturday and

his party`s protest was justified.

"We plan to sit outside the port`s main gates from

carrying NATO supplies upcountry," he said.

He said that it is shameful that the government had
given a free hand to their "American masters to kill
Pakistanis at will."

"We`ll be protesting against the drone strikes till
our people are truly liberated from the clutches of monsters,"
he said.

Tehreek-e-Insaaf had staged sit-in in Peshawar last
month to protest the drone attacks.

Insurgents have in the past attacked NATO supply
trucks and oil-tankers to disrupt supplies to the more than
130,000 international troops fighting in Afghanistan.

Pakistan is the main route for shipping supplies to
the coalition troops in Afghanistan. The government has
threatened that if the US carried out another covert operation
in its territory it would consider stopping supplies to NATO
troops from Pakistani routes.
