Missiles Halt Pipeline

MOSCOW -- The U.S. missile strike on Afghanistan may have led to a temporary halt in work on a Turkmenistan-Pakistan gas pipeline, The New York Times reported Friday.

The Times said work had stopped on a proposed $1.9 billion, 1,400-kilometer pipeline project to connect the Dauletabad gas field in the central Asian republic of Turkmenistan with Pakistan, including a long stretch through Afghanistan.
