PAKISTAN: Trucks supplying fuel for NATO forces in Afghanistan torched

November 20, 2010 |  7:14 am


The roads connecting Pakistan to Afghanistan continue to be dangerous as the Taliban tries to hamper supply lines for United States-led forces.  

On Saturday in the northwestern city of Peshawar, insurgents didn't even wait for the supply trucks to leave the depot.  Two dozen gunmen reportedly torched at least eight trucks used to supply fuel for NATO forces in Afghanistan, police said.

No casualties were reported.
