Main US supplies route bridge blown up in Pakistan

Western forces in Afghanistan depend on supplies coming through Pakistan. Over the last few months, there have been many attacks on the supplies transportation such that a lot of supplies would be lost or disrupted putting the US forces to hardship in Afghanistan (specially in the winters).

Now, the terrorists and the Taliban supporters have gone a step further and bombed the bridge in Khyber Pass, which happened to be on the main route for the supplies. The 100 foot iron bridge was blown away in the night, after the traffic on that route had been suspended. It is located west of Peshawar.
