QUETTA:

Two Nato oil tankers were set on fire by unidentified people in the Dhadar area of Balochistan.


According to sources, the two tankers were carrying fuel for Nato troops stationed in the south western parts of Afghanistan. As the containers reached Dhadar, they were attacked and set on fire.


No one has as yet claimed responsibility of the incident. However the police have begun their investigations.


The bulk of supplies and equipment required by foreign troops in Afghanistan are shipped through Pakistan.

Nato trucks and  tankers are regularly targeted with arson attacks blamed on insurgents attempting to disrupt supply to foreign troops in Afghanistan.
