Landi Kotal, Mar 4(ANI): In the latest attack on convoys in Pakistan carrying supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan, two oil tankers were destroyed in a bomb explosion near the Torkham border in northwestern Pakistan's Khyber tribal region on Friday.
No casualties were reported in the blast, the Dawn reports.
Security forces cordoned off the area, and have started a search operation to nab the culprits.
No group has claimed responsibility for the blast so far, but the Taliban have been behind such attacks in the past.
NATO trucks and oil tankers are regularly targeted with arson attacks blamed on insurgents attempting to disrupt the two key supply lines, which cross western Pakistan bound for foreign troops fighting in neighbouring Afghanistan.
The bulk of supplies and equipment required by foreign troops fighting the war in Afghanistan is shipped through the Khyber region. (ANI)
