Two NATO containers set ablaze in Pak's Balochistan province

Islamabad , Wed, 11 May 2011 ANI

Islamabad, May 11(ANI): In the latest attack on convoys in Pakistan carrying supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan, unidentified miscreants torched two NATO containers at Mastung in Balochistan on Wednesday.


According to Levies sources, two Afghan-bound NATO containers, coming from Karachi, came under attack in Ganji Douri area of Mastung as they were on their way to Chaman, The Nation reports.


The militants first opened fire at the containers with heavy automatic weapons, and then set them ablaze, the report said.


The drivers and helpers of the containers escaped unhurt in the incident, but the tankers were completely burnt because no fire brigade facility was available in the area.


Mastung's Tehsildar, along with Levies personnel, reached the scene, and a search operation was launched after cordoning off the area.


A case has also been registered against the unidentified miscreants in the Wali Khan Police Station.


Earlier, there have been similar attacks on the convoys carrying supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan in Quetta, Naseerabad and Shikarpur areas of Pakistan.


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. (ANI)
