Peshawar: Militants blew up a tanker carrying fuel for NATO forces in Afghanistan on the outskirts of this north-western Pakistani city on Thursday, police said.

The militants fired a rocket at the oil tanker and destroyed it in the Ring Road area, police said.

Fire fighters rushed to the spot and extinguished the blaze. A search operation was launched in the area though no arrests were made, police said.

Pro-Taliban militants in northwest Pakistan have destroyed scores of tankers and container trucks ferrying oil and supplies to US and NATO forces in Afghanistan over the past two years.
