Militants Kill 6 in NATO Convoy Attack in Pakistan

Officials in Pakistan say militants have attacked a NATO convoy in the northwestern part of the country, killing six people.

The attack happened Monday near Jamrud, in the Khyber district located along the Afghan border.

Officials said at least 15 militants used rockets and automatic weapons to attack trucks carrying supplies for coalition troops in Afghanistan. The attack left several of the trucks on fire.

The dead included truck drivers and their assistants.

Militant attacks are common in northwestern Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal belt.

Pakistan is a key transit route for the NATO mission in Afghanistan, from where supplies are driven to the border from the Arabian Sea port of Karachi.
