Afghanistan and Pakistani food shortages

We're hearing more about what the European troops aren't doing in Afghanistan - but this may be more important. From Empty Corner, via The Newshoggers blogroll amnesty day edition:

This closure is having an immediate effect in blocking supplies to NATO forces. The effects can become a whole lot worse. The shortage of bread will drive a lot of people to the Taliban.

Empty links to Dawn (a Pakistani online English language newspaper) with more information about the border closing and flour shortages.
