Casualties As Gunmen Attack NATO Supply Trucks In Pakistan

Pakistani officials say at least one driver has been killed in attacks on trucks carrying supplies to NATO-led forces in Afghanistan.

The violence on April 14 took place in the Jamrud area, near the northwestern city of Peshawar.

The AFP news agency quoted Ali Sher, a local official, as saying three trucks were attacked, leaving one driver dead and two others injured.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.

The violence came days after a cease-fire declared by the Pakistani Taliban expired.

The cease-fire had been announced as the militants explored peace talks with the Pakistani government.
