Islamabad: Suspected militants attacked
and torched two container trucks carrying supplies for NATO
forces in Afghanistan in Balochistan in southwest Pakistan on Sunday, security officials said.

The militants attacked the trucks in Kalat district,
110 km south of provincial capital Quetta, officials of the
Levies militia said.

The attackers set the trucks on fire and escaped.

Law enforcement personnel cordoned off the area and
launched a search to trace the attackers.

Pro-Taliban militants have destroyed hundreds of
trucks and oil tankers carrying supplies and fuel to US and
NATO forces in Afghanistan in attacks in northwest and
southwest Pakistan over the past few years.

Dozens of people have been killed in the attacks.
