PESHAWAR: Six people were killed when militants attacked three Nato containers in Shagai area of Jamrud tehsil of the Khyber tribal region on Monday.
Security forces were engaged in a firefight with the militants who attacked the containers and set them on fire.
As a result, six people, including the drivers of the containers were killed.
Khyber is among Pakistan’s seven semi-autonomous tribal districts near the Afghan border, rife with homegrown insurgents and home to a number of militant organisations.
The tribal region also links several agencies to each other, serving as a north-south route within Fata.
Moreover, the bulk of supplies and equipment required by foreign troops in Afghanistan is shipped through the Khyber region, although US troops increasingly use alternative routes through central Asia.
