Police: Pakistan bomb targeted US-NATO supply line

Pakistani police say a car bombing in the country's southwest hit trucks taking supplies to Western troops in Afghanistan. Four people died in the blast.
The bomb detonated Tuesday outside a roadside restaurant in Baluchistan province. The restaurant is popular with truckers who ferry supplies to U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan.
Police officer Khuda Bukhsh said a wounded truck driver told him his vehicle carried the troop supplies. At least three trucks were parked when the bomb exploded.
Militants have frequently targeted the supply line for Western forces, which uses two major routes in Pakistan. Most attacks have occurred in the northwest, through the Khyber Pass.
