Suspected militants in Balochistan province of southwest Pakistan on Thursday attacked two tankers carrying oil for NATO forces in Afghanistan, killing a driver and destroying two vehicles, officials said.
The armed men ambushed the tankers going to Afghanistan in Bolan district of
Balochistan, officials of the Levies militia said.
A driver was killed instantly in the firing and two tankers were gutted.
The attackers escaped before security forces reached the site.
Levies personnel later cordoned off the area and launched a search operation.
Pro-Taliban militants regularly attack trucks and tankers ferrying supplies to US and NATO forces in Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan provinces.
Hundreds of vehicles have been destroyed and scores killed in such attacks.
