Pakistan stalls Afghan exit

The border between Pakistan and Afghanistan shut down in the wake of a US air strike, affecting Canada's withdrawl of its equipment and troops from Kandahar, the Canadian Press reported. Pakistan is halting NATO supply trucks in protest of the air strike that killed at least 24 soldiers in the Pakistan military. Canada has vowed to exist Kandahar by the end of the year and has already flown out sensitive vehicles and equipment on its C-17s. Ordinary stores are being shipped over land to Karachi, the Pakistani port.
