NATO supply truck attacked in Pakistan
Two people have been killed when gunmen attacked a NATO supply truck in southwestern Pakistan's Balouchistan province near the border with Afghanistan, Press TV reported.
Gunmen riding a motorbike attacked a NATO supply truck traveling from Karachi to Quetta, the capital of Balouchistan province, and two people, including the driver, have been killed, Mohammad Anwar, a senior Pakistani police official told a Press TV correspondent early on Saturday morning.
The attackers fled from the scene afterwards and are still at large. The injured and the bodies of the dead have been transferred to a local hospital.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the latest attack, which came days after militants torched over 40 NATO oil tankers and containers in the northwestern city of Nowshera and in Quetta.
Taliban militants recently launched a series of attacks to avenge a new wave of non-UN-sanctioned US drone strikes in the rugged border region of northwestern Pakistan.
The Pakistani authorities have reported 26 drone attacks, which have killed more than 140 people, since September 3.
