Two NATO trucks attacked in Pakistan, driver killed
Islamabad: Suspected militants attacked two NATO supply trucks in the restive Balochistan province of southwest Pakistan today and set a vehicle on fire after killing its driver.
The attack occurred in Naseerabad district, 400 km southeast of provincial capital Quetta.
At least gunmen riding motorcycles fired at the two trucks, killing a driver. They then set a truck carrying a heavy NATO vehicle on fire.
The trucks, coming from Afghanistan, were headed for Karachi.
The NATO mission in Afghanistan is due to end next year and most of its military hardware will be flown out of the land-locked country or moved by road to the port city of Karachi.
No group claimed responsibility for today`s attack but such incidents are usually blamed on the Pakistani Taliban.
