7 NATO fuel tankers torched in Balochistan
The tankers were set ablaze in the Dasht area near a hotel after gunmen attacked a convoy bound for Afghanistan, said a policeman. The remaining trucks in the convoy were protected.
A local journalist, Mohammad Kazim, told Pajhwok Afghan News seven tankers caught fire as a result of the overnight attack. The fire spread after one of the tankers exploded.
Two armed motorcyclists assailed the convoy, torching five tankers. The assailants managed to flee the scene, said police officer Mohabat Khan, who added there were no casualties.
No group has so far claimed responsibility, but the Pakistani Taliban are often blamed for such attacks in the past.
