Pakistanis have blocked the US main supply route to Afghanistan in north-western Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and protestors have been harassing truck drivers and turning back vehicles carrying Nato provisions, the BBC reports.
Pentagon spokesman Mark Wright said that this would affect outgoing shipments of equipment and other goods from US units on Afghan soil, but the deliveries could be resumed "in the near future."
The other crossings in south-west Balochistan province has not been affected by a blockade, the report added.
Meanwhile, Washington has already redirected many supplies bypassing Pakistan to reach Afghan soil.
