Pakistan restores fuel supply for NATO

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Pakistan allowed the transport of fuel supplies for NATO troops in Afghanistan, officials said.

Officials said two tankers loaded with oil crossed the border after being cleared by Pakistani customs officials, Khaama Press reported.

Fuel supply to coalition troops had been suspended until Wednesday even though Pakistan allowed NATO supply trucks to resume travel through the country to Afghanistan in July after the United States apologized for the killing of 24 Pakistani soldiers during a NATO airstrike last November.

The local administration deployed security personnel along the Peshawar-Torkham Highway to ensure the tankers' safe passage, officials said.
