Gunmen in southwestern Pakistan set fire to more than two dozen tankers carrying fuel for NATO troops in Afghanistan on Saturday, a government official said.

The suspected Islamist militants have stepped up attacks on convoys carrying supplies for NATO forces since a cross-border air strike by NATO forces on September 30 in northwestern Pakistan that killed two Pakistani soldiers.
