QUETTA: Two Nato containers were torched on Wednesday in Mastung district, about 50-kilometres southeast of Quetta.

A group of armed men intercepted two containers on the RCD Highway and set them ablaze.

“The containers were empty and were returning to Karachi from Kandahar after supplying military hardware to Nato and Isaf forces stationed in Afghanistan,” confirmed Abdul Razzaq, an official of the Balochistan Levies.

The assailants, who were on foot, fled the scene after setting both containers ablaze. No casualty was reported in the attack.
