PESHAWAR: Pakistan on Saturday resumed Nato supplies, allowing 14 containers to cross into Afghanistan from its northwestern border at Torkham, officials said.

Pakistan had temporarily stopped Nato supplies over security concerns on July 24 after gunmen attacked a convoy of Nato trucks, killing a driver, in the town of Jamrud on the outskirts of the main northwestern city Peshawar.

“The Nato supplies have been resumed from today and we sent 14 containers” for international troops in Afghanistan,” a local administration official told AFP on condition of anonymity because he is unauthorised to speak to media.

A local intelligence official also confirmed resumption of supplies and the departure of 14 Nato containers to Afghanistan.

A senior local customs official, Ubaidullah Khan, however, put the figure of containers, which left for Afghanistan, at seven, adding that they carried food stuff and clothes.
