The News Network International news agency quoted police as saying that the militants used patrol bombs to torch the supplies trucks and oil containers in Peshawar, capital city of North West Frontier Province (NWFP) early Saturday morning. The attackers fled after the attack.

It is the fifth attack on a Pakistani freight terminal near Peshawar within ten days, police and terminal authorities said, adding that the fresh attack raised the number of destroyed containers and oil tankers to around 325.

The NWFP government has requested the federal government to provide security for the terminals of coalition forces’ trucks as the police are unable to ensure security.

Peshawar police chief Sifwat Gayoor said that the authorities had got some evidences about those involved in the attacks and had also arrested five suspects.
