Pakistan blocks NATO's Afghan supply route

Islamabad shuts NATO's supply routes to Afghanistan after alleged attack by military alliance kills 25 Pakistan troops.

    There has been a furious response from Pakistan after fighter planes and helicopters killed at least 25 of its soldiers.

    After NATO admitted that it was probably responsible, Pakistan shut the military alliance's supply routes into Afghanistan and ordered the US to leave an airbase in the southwest of the country.

    Pakistan also said it was reviewing its relations with NATO and the US.
