PESHAWAR - Gunmen on Monday killed a truck driver in Khyber tribal belt over suspicions that he was transporting supplies for NATO troops in Afghanistan, officials said.
Local government official Bakhtiar Khan told AFP that three gunmen in a jeep fired on the truck, killing its driver. NATO traffic was very briefly suspended after the incident.
Pakistan reopened the Torkham crossing on Saturday, having signed a deal with the United States last Tuesday allowing NATO convoys to travel into Afghanistan until the end of 2015.
Islamabad in July lifted a seven-month blockade on NATO goods passing overland through Pakistan, imposed after botched US air raids killed 24 Pakistani troops in November.
