Militants blew up a bridge in northwestern Pakistan's Khyber Pass Tuesday, cutting the main route for supplies bound for Western forces in Afghanistan, according to local TV reports.

The private Geo TV quoted senior district official Nasir Khan as saying that all traffic along the route was suspended.

Militants in northwestern Pakistan stepped up attacks on the crucial route into landlocked Afghanistan last year in an attempt to deprive international forces fighting the Taliban of fuel and other supplies trucked in from Pakistan.
