Two NATO oil tankers torched in BalochistanMarch 12th, 2011 - 4:12 pm ICT by ANI
Quetta, Mar 12(ANI): In the latest attack on convoys in Pakistan carrying supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan, gunmen torched two NATO oil tankers in Balochistan on Saturday.
The Dawn quoted police official Zareef Kurd, as saying that the attack happened in Balochistan’s Mach area.
The assailants fled after the attack, and there were no casualties in the incident.
Mach is about 75 kilometres east of Quetta, which is the capital of Balochistan.
Earlier, there have been similar attacks on the convoys carrying supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan in Quetta, Naseerabad and Shikarpur areas of Pakistan.
NATO trucks and oil tankers are regularly targeted with arson attacks blamed on insurgents attempting to disrupt the two key supply lines, which cross western Pakistan bound for foreign troops fighting in neighbouring Afghanistan. (ANI)
