Pakistani police said suspected militants killed a policeman and torched 62 trucks at a terminal used to supply NATO and US troops in Afghanistan. Police official Kashif Alam said about 30 assailants attacked the terminal near the northwestern city of Peshawar with rockets and guns early Sunday. Alam said fire engulfed 62 trucks and containers likely carrying supplies to foreign forces in Afghanistan. A series of similar attacks in recent weeks have raised concern that Taliban militants are seeking to disrupt what is a vital supply line for NATO and US forces through the Khyber Pass.
