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.
