Official: US supply route closed in NW Pakistan

A Pakistani official says a main road used to ferry supplies to U.S and allied troops in Afghanistan has been closed because of an army offensive against militants in northwest Pakistan.
Pakistani official Fazal Mehmood said operations were taking place Tuesday against militants in the Khyber region and the main Pakistan-Afghan highway there was closed as a result.
Mehmood is a civilian administrator in Khyber in northwest Pakistan.
Many of the supplies for U.S. and other foreign forces in Afghanistan are transported along the road.
