27 NATO Tankers Torched in Pakistan
Posted on Oct 1, 2010
Officials believe up to 15 gunmen armed with rocket launchers have attacked a supply convoy and destroyed at least 27 tankers carrying fuel for NATO forces in Afghanistan. The attacks, which occurred in the southern Sindh providence of Pakistan, may be a response to Thursday’s cross-border NATO airstrike into Pakistan.
Suspected militants in southern Pakistan have destroyed at least 27 tankers carrying fuel for Nato forces in Afghanistan, officials said.
There have been many similar ambushes in Pakistan in recent years, but this is the first one in this part of the southern province of Sindh.
It is not clear if it is linked to a cross-border air strike by Nato that killed three Pakistani troops.
