Gunmen in Pakistan have attacked and set fire to 20 trucks transporting oil supplies to NATO troops in Afghanistan.

Reports say the driver of one of the vehicles has been killed.

It’s the latest in a series of attacks on the supply chain for the war in Afghanistan, the bulk of which
moves through Pakistan which is itself battling a deadly insurgency.

Islamabad has recently been angered by repeated incursions by NATO helicopters and last week blocked a supply route raising tensions with the US.

The recent attacks have all been claimed by Taliban militants.
