Supplies to NATO troops in Afghanistan have resumed after a protest rally against US drone attacks blocked a key highway in the Pakistani city of Peshawar for three days, according to officials. The rally was held by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf. Speaking at the rally, Tehreek-e-Insaaf chairman Imran Khan warned the government that if drone strikes are not stopped in a month, his party workers would close NATO supply routes all over the country and march towards the capital Islamabad. Over 3,000 trucks pass the northern route every day, carrying supplies for the NATO forces in Afghanistan from Pakistan’s port city of Karachi.
