Pakistan closures affect Afghan lives

Schools prevented from receiving vital supplies since Pakistan blocked NATO supply routes over US attack.

    Pakistan's president says he will go to Chicago for a NATO summit on Afghanistan, which is an indication that Pakistan may be willing to reopen the coalition's supply routes into Afghanistan.

    Pakistan blocked the routes in November in protest over a US air raid that killed 24 Pakistani troops.

    The closures, a consequence of a major dispute between Pakistan and the US, have also affected Afghan citizens' lives for the worse.

    Jennifer Glasse reports from Lycee Rabia Balkhi in Kabul, one of the schools facing a supply shortage due to the blockade of NATO supply routes.
