Pakistan anger as NATO routes set to reopen

Transport workers upbeat about renewal of Afghan supply routes, but most Pakistanis in opposition.

    The US and Pakistan are finalising details to reopen NATO supply routes into Afghanistan.

    The routes were closed six months ago after a US air raid on a Pakistani military post near the Afghan border killed several Pakistani soldiers, causing widespread anger.

    Most people associated with Pakistan's trucking industry have seen a decline in their business since the routes were halted. They are among the few who are upbeat about the reinstatement.

    The majority of Pakistanis, however, are in opposition to the move.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from Peshawar on the impact of the government's decision to reopen the routes.
