NATO tankers torched in Pakistan attack


At least four people have been killed in Pakistan after suspected Islamic militants attacked a convoy carrying fuel destined for NATO troops in Afghanistan.

A group of around 20 or so unidentified gunmen opened fire on the fuel tankers, which were parked at a terminal. The strike took place in the troubled north-western city of Peshawar, close to the main border crossings and supply routes for NATO forces.

This is the latest in a series of attacks. In September, scores of NATO supply vehicles were destroyed in gun and arson attacks by Taliban militants determined to disrupt relief routes and avenge US drone strikes in Pakistan’s tribal belt.
