Islamabad: One person was killed and two oil tankers were destroyed in two separate attacks on NATO vehicles in Balochistan in southwest Pakistan, security officials said on Thursday.

Motorcycle-borne suspected militants fired indiscriminately at a container truck ferrying supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan near Khuzdar, killing one person and injuring two others.

Local paramilitary forces later sealed the area and launched a search operation.

In the second incident, two oil tankers were incinerated when unidentified gunmen fired at them. The attackers, who were on motorcycles, sprayed bullets at the tankers and fled.

No group claimed responsibility for both the attacks.
