WASHINGTON, DC - Trucks carrying NATO goods are expected to start rolling across Pakistan's border into Afghanistan on Wednesday - now that the U.S. has apologized to Pakistan for the deaths of 24 Pakistani troops last fall.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke with her Pakistani counterpart on Tuesday. She said she told the official the U.S. was sorry for the losses suffered by Pakistan's military.

In return, Pakistan is reopening the critical NATO supply lines. The agreement could save the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars in war costs.
