2 more NATO trucks torched

QUETTA: Gunmen Tuesday torched vehicles carrying supplies for NATO troops fighting the Taliban in neighbouring Afghanistan, in the second such attack in 24 hours, police said.Two men riding on a motorbike held up the trucks at gun point, forcing the drivers and their helpers to leave, police official Khuda Bakhsh said. The gunmen doused the trucks in petrol before shooting at them at Dasht Bado town, 175 kilometres (about 110 miles) south of here, Bakhsh said. The attackers fled on their motorbike, he said.The attacks came a week after Pakistan reopened the main land border crossing used by NATO supply convoys, following an 11-day closure imposed after a cross-border NATO helicopter strike killed two Pakistani soldiers.A senior police officer here confirmed the attack, which came less than 24 hours after three tankers were attacked in Baluchistan on Monday. There was no claim of responsibility, but the Taliban mounted a series of similar attacks this month, exploiting the build-up of convoys caused by the border closure and saying they were avenging US drone strikes – Dailymailnews
