First NATO trucks enter Afghanistan

Trucks in Pakistan carry NATO supplies to Afghanistan - the first vehicles to take this journey in over seven months. The supply route has been closed since November after 24 Pakistani soldiers were killed by U.S. aircraft. But a deal this week between the U.S. and Washington ended the impasse. Hundreds of trucks still remain parked at a terminal in Karachi, but a spokesman for the All Pakistan Tankers Association said they will begin moving soon. (SOUNDBITE) (Urdu) SPOKESMAN FOR THE ALL PAKISTAN TANKERS ASSOCIATION, ASRAR AHMED: "As far as oil tankers are concerned, some paperwork still remains, the invoices are being prepared. As soon as this work is completed, the tankers will leave for loading. The containers carrying goods have already been loaded and are now leaving." The resumption of NATO transit into Afghanistan came two days after Washington yielded to Pakistani demands and said it was sorry for November's deaths. Simon Hanna, Reuters.
