NATO supply routes into Afghanistan

KABUL, Nov 26 (Reuters) – NATO helicopters attacked a
military checkpoint in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, killing
up to 28 troops and prompting Pakistan to shut the vital supply
route for NATO troops fighting in Afghanistan, Pakistani
officials said.

NATO supply trucks and fuel tankers bound for Afghanistan
were halted at Jamrud town in the Khyber tribal region near the
city of Peshawar hours after the raid, officials said.

Afghanistan will need $7 billion a year over next decade: WB

KABUL (Reuters) – Afghanistan is likely to need around $7 billion a year from the international community to help pay its security and other bills long after foreign troops leave, even if two large mines start production as planned, the World Bank said on Tuesday.

That annual spending, projected for the decade to 2021, does not include the cost of thousands of foreign troops expected to stay in Afghanistan to support and train Afghan forces after 2014, the deadline for NATO-led combat soldiers to return home.
