Gunmen torch NATO trucks in Pakistan


Islamabad : Unidentified gunmen set ablaze five trucks carrying NATO equipment out of Afghanistan as the international military alliance winds down its combat mission there, a media report said Monday.

The incident happened in Bolan district, around 120 km from Quetta, the provincial capital of Balochistan, Geo News reported.

Four masked gunmen on two motorbikes opened fire at the vehicles, forcing them to stop. They then doused the vehicles in petrol and set them on fire, Iftikhar Bugti, a government official was quoted as saying.

All five trucks were almost completely destroyed and a driver was slightly injured in the attack, he said.
