**Militants Kill 6 in NATO Convoy Attack in Pakistan**
Officials in Pakistan say militants have attacked a NATO convoy in the northwestern part of the country, killing six people.
The attack happened Monday near Jamrud, in the Khyber district located along the Afghan border.
Officials said at least 15 militants used rockets and automatic weapons to attack trucks carrying supplies for coalition troops in Afghanistan. The attack left several of the trucks on fire.
The dead included truck drivers and their assistants.
Militant attacks are common in northwestern Pakistan’s semi-autonomous tribal belt.
Pakistan is a key transit route for the NATO mission in Afghanistan, from where supplies are driven to the border from the Arabian Sea port of Karachi.
Two car bombs and a suicide attacker have killed at least 13 people in Iraq.
Officials say the blasts erupted Monday in a food market in the mainly Shi'ite town of Jadida al-Shat, some 40 kilometers north of Baghdad.
The attacks come a day after a suicide car bomb in the Iraqi capital killed seven people and wounded at least 18 others.
Sunday's blast struck the Shi'ite neighborhood of Kadhimiyah in northern Baghdad.
No group has claimed responsibility for the latest attacks.
Violence in Iraq has escalated in recent weeks, raising concern of a return to widespread sectarian attacks. Officials have blamed recent violence on Sunni Islamist insurgents.
