"Khyber is one of the country's seven semi-autonomous tribal districts near the Afghan border, rife with homegrown insurgents and home to a number of militant organisations."
Islamabad, May 5 - At least two people were killed Monday when unidentified militants attacked NATO containers in Pakistan's Khyber tribal region.

The gunmen opened fire at three NATO containers in the Wazir Dhand area of Jamrud tehsil, the Dawn online reported.

The containers were set ablaze.

Khyber is one of the country's seven semi-autonomous tribal districts near the Afghan border, rife with homegrown insurgents and home to a number of militant organisations.

The bulk of supplies and equipment required by foreign troops stationed in Afghanistan are transported through Khyber, although the US troops are increasingly using alternative routes through central Asia, the report said.
