Peshawar: An oil tanker carrying fuel for
NATO forces in Afghanistan was blown up with a bomb in the
lawless Khyber tribal region in northwest Pakistan, officials
said.
Officials of the local political administration said
there were no reports of casualties in the incident.
The tanker`s driver and his helper jumped out of the
vehicle soon after the explosion and were safe, they said.

The tanker was carrying 48,000 litres of fuel which
was destroyed by the blast.

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