Pakistani activists of Islamic party Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal-Jamat shout anti-NATO and anti-US slogans during a protest rally in Islamabad on October 1, 2010. Heavily armed gunmen in Pakistan set ablaze more than two dozen trucks and tankers carrying fuel and supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan, one day after Pakistan closed the border to the convoys. Attacks on trucks carrying goods for US and NATO-led forces are routine, but the incident came a day after Pakistan blocked the convoys following the deaths of three Pakistani soldiers blamed on cross-border NATO fire.
