The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility Monday for a pre-dawn attack on tankers carrying fuel to Afghanistan for U.S. and other NATO forces, left vulnerable on the side of the road after Pakistan shut down a key border crossing.
Trucker Kalam Khan, who has been waiting for five days on his flatbed truck with a container of supplies for the U.S. Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan, said drivers are in constant fear.
"If vehicles for Afghanistan are not safe in Islamabad, we could be attacked any time," he said.
