Pakistan suspends NATO supplies in response to NATO attack


Pakistan has suspended NATO supplies to Afghanistan in protest against NATO strike. 
NATO helicopters fired on an army checkpoint near the Afghan border and killed 25 soldiers, in an attack that is likely to further strain relations between Islamabad and US-led forces fighting in Afghanistan.The incident late Friday night came a little over a year after US helicopters killed two Pakistani soldiers near the border. Pakistan responded by closing a key border crossing on a NATO supply route to Afghanistan for 10 days until the US apologized.

In a statement sent to reporters, the Pakistan military blamed NATO for the attack in the Mohmand tribal area, saying the helicopters "carried out unprovoked and indiscriminate firing." It said casualties have been reported but details were still coming.
