Khan’s Party Blocks NATO Pakistan Supply Route Over U.S. Drones

Thousands of Pakistanis protested U.S. drone strikes in the country’s northwest by staging a sit-in on a vital supply route for NATO forces in neighboring Afghanistan.

The demonstrators clogged the highway in Peshawar at the urging of Imran Khan, the former international cricket star whose Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party holds power in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa region that borders Afghanistan. Shipments on the route, which isn’t used on weekends, will be blocked once they resume late tomorrow, the PTI party said.
