Pakistanis protest NATO route reopening

Thousands take to the streets of capital Islamabad to protest their government's decision.

    Thousands of Pakistanis have taken to the streets of the capital Islamabad to protest their government's decision to reopen supply lines for NATO troops into Afghanistan. 

    Pakistan had closed the routes last November after a cross-border NATO air strike killed 24 of its soldiers. They were reopened last week after Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, apologised for the attack.
