More NATO trucks attacked in Pakistan

More NATO lorries have gone up in smoke in Pakistan, after the fourth attack on a supply convoy in just six days.

Militants attacked dozens of vehicles parked up at a hotel on the outskirts of the south-western city of Quetta.

The lorries were heading for another crossing into Afghanistan, after Islamabad closed the Khyber Pass route last week following a NATO border incursion.

Firefighters worked for hours to get the blaze under control.

One man, thought to be a truck driver, was killed in the attack.

It is unclear who was behind it. The Pakistani Taliban have said they carried out similar attacks, including one on Monday in which four people died.
