Militants torched 160 vehicles, including dozens of Humvees destined for US and allied forces fighting in Afghanistan, in the boldest attack so far on the critical military supply line through Pakistan. The American military said Sunday's raid on two transport terminals near the beleaguered Pakistani city of Peshawar would have "minimal" impact on anti-Taliban operations set to expand with the arrival of thousands more troops next year. However, the attack feeds concern that insurgents are trying to choke the route through the famed Khyber Pass, which carries up to 70 percent of the supplies for Western forces in landlocked Afghanistan, and drive up the cost of the war. It also dents faith in Pakistani authorities already under pressure from India and the US to act on suspicion that the deadly terror attacks in Mumbai were orchestrated by Islamic extremists based in Pakistan.
