The Khyber Pass is a narrow defile linking Pakistan with Afghanistan. Afghanistan was a 19C creation of the British, as was Pakistan in the 20C. The present border cuts through the tribal territory of the Pathans, which spans both sides of the border. The road is usually nose to tail of trucks bringing contaband of every kind, bound for the city of Peshawar for distribution.
