Afghanistan Says Iran Blocking Fuel Tankers

Afghan officials say Iran has been preventing fuel tankers from crossing into Afghanistan for more than two weeks, stranding hundreds of trucks at the border.

Officials from Afghanistan's foreign ministry and ministry of commerce said they had received no explanation from Tehran.

Iran has not officially confirmed the move, but some Afghan officials have suggested Iran could be acting out of concern that the fuel is being funneled to NATO forces fighting the Taliban.
