NATO Oil Tankers Burnt in Balochistan

QUETTA, Dec 20: Two oil tankers carrying fuel for Nato forces in southern Afghanistan were burnt down by armed men near the western bypass on Sunday.

It was the second case of torching of Nato tankers in Balochistan in the last four days.

Sources said the tankers coming from Karachi were parked near a hotel when men on a pick-up opened fire on them.

As a result, they caught fire and were gutted before the arrival of fire tenders.

The assailants escaped after the attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
