QUETTA, Pakistan: A police official says gunmen have torched two NATO oil tankers in southwestern Pakistan.
Abdullah Lango says the attack occurred in the area of Mangocher, about 250 miles (400 kilometers) east of Quetta, on Sunday. Quetta is the capital of Baluchistan province.
He says the attackers fired at the tankers but let the drivers go before torching the vehicles.
Oil tankers carrying supplies to NATO forces in southern Afghanistan travel from the Pakistani port city of Karachi to the border town of Chaman through the insurgency plagued Baluchistan, where they routinely come under attack.

It means the terrorists are also in Peshawar area. Why so many NATO forces are killed by Pakistani militants? It will be a threat to the civilians and to the nation in large.

Palistan has to do more to to stop such terrorism which risks the life of innocents.
