    The current route to bring supplies to the foreign forces in Afghanistan from Pakistan has become too dangerous, with regular attacks on lorries.

    Russia has offered to provide a new supply route into the country.

    Al Jazeera's Hamish Macdonald travels along the new route where local police fear the Taliban will follow the supplies and start attacks in this area instead.
