.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced Tuesday that Pakistan has decided to reopen supply routes that the U.S. uses to send reinforcements to its troops in Afghanistan. Pakistan shut down the route last November after dozens of its troops were killed in a mistaken U.S. airstrike. The route, which offers a shorter, more direct way than the one NATO has been using in the meantime, reaches from Afghanistan to the lawless tribal regions of Pakistan and down to the southern port of Karachi. "This is a tangible demonstration of Pakistan's support for a secure, peaceful, and prosperous Afghanistan and our shared objectives in the region," Clinton said.
