US vessel carrying military hardware Arrive At Karachi

The situation at Karachi port already struggling to cope with severe congestion may worsen as a US vessel carrying military hardware, including about 350 heavy vehicles, for Nato/Isaf forces in Afghanistan sailed into the port on Saturday evening just when the sun was setting on the horizon for the last time in 2011.
Another two ships with Nato supplies, including reefer containers with refrigeration system, are due in a few days.
Terminals and areas around the port are already chock-a-block with hundreds of containers unloaded before Pakistan stopped
Nato supplies in the aftermath of the Nov 26 attacks on its Mohamnd posts, killing 24 soldiers.
Shipping sources told Dawn that after the US vessel Freedom which had sailed into the port on Saturday was accommodated at berths 11 and 12. Another two vessels, MV Alliance Beaumont and Liberty Pride, with more cargo for Nato/Isaf troops were due over the next few days.
The manifest of the Freedom declares the cargo as “goods in transit to Afghanistan” and the importer is the US military and the consignor, Surface Deployment and Command.The vessel Freedom lifted US military cargo from the Baltimore, Jeddah and Jebel Ali (UAE) ports

The program was heavily edited. They had recorded it on December 14th but were not airing it because it exposed the NATO and the government.
