Suspected militants attack yet more NATO trucks


Gunmen in Pakistan have once again attacked and set on fire NATO supply trucks destined for Afghanistan.

Around 30 lorries were engulfed in flames as suspected armed militants opened fire along the road in khairabad.

It was the the second such incident in 24-hours, earlier another 25 tankers were destroyed.

There have been a string of attacks since Pakistan closed a key border crossing with Afghanistan almost a week ago.

This latest one comes after the US apologised for the killing of two Pakistani soldiers during a NATO cross-border incursion.

It is hoped Islamabad will now reopen the Torkham crossing along the fabled Khyber Pass where hundreds of NATO supply trucks have been left stranded providing an easy target for armed militants.
