BRITISH RETREAT FROM KABUL, 1842
A prominent, independent tribesman from the Khyber region, who cannot be named for his own safety, told The Sunday Telegraph that the Pakistani army was close to losing control of the pass.
PESHAWAR, Pakistan, July 9 (Reuters) - Gunmen attacked a Pakistani military supply convoy in a northwestern region near the Afghan border, killing four paramilitary soldiers and wounding four, a government official said on Wednesday.
The attack late on Tuesday was the first major assault on security forces in the Khyber region since they launched a sweep on June 28 to push back militants threatening the city of Peshawar.
The ambush was on a remote road linking two military outposts to the south of the Khyber Pass, through which fuel and other supplies are trucked to U.S. and other foreign forces in Afghanistan.
