Quetta(Pakistan), Oct 9: The attacks on the international troops continue in the Afghan-Pak border as the armed gunmen torched 29 NATO oil tankers in south-western Pakistan before dawn on Saturday, Oct 9.

Local government official Abdul Mateen said the attackers used guns and fired a rocket to destroy the tanker."We are facing problems in extinguishing the fire," he added.

At least 10 gunmen were involved in the attack, another official Jamil Khan said as the oil tankers were parked near a roadside restaurant.

Pakistan has blocked the supply line for NATO troops since Sep 30, following a NATO helicopter strike that killed two Pakistani border guards after which several attacks have been carried out by the Pakistani militants.
