Pakistani officials say gunmen have attacked a convoy carrying supplies for NATO troops in Afghanistan, killing a driver and wounding at least one other person.

The officials say the attack happened Tuesday in Jamrud, the main town in Pakistan's Khyber tribal region.

It was the first attack on a NATO convoy since Pakistan reopened the supply route earlier this month following a seven-month blockade.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday's attack.

The Pakistani Taliban has threatened to attack NATO convoys.
