    NATO fuel trucks destroyed in Pakistan

    [​IMG]

    MILITANTS have destroyed at least 34 trucks in a rocket attack on a NATO trucking terminal in south-west Pakistan supplying troops in neighbouring Afghanistan.

    Some 44 oil tankers and goods trucks were parked in the temporary terminal in Quetta after Pakistan shut down supply lines for NATO forces in anger at a deadly cross-border air strike which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

    Quetta police chief Ahsan Mehboob said only two trucks remained unaffected by the gun and rocket attack which triggered the fire while eight other vehicles were partially damaged.

    There were no casualties in the attack, he added.

    Senior police official Malik Arshad earlier told AFP that gunmen fired bullets and a rocket at the NATO oil tankers and the ensuing blaze engulfed more than 20 vehicles in Quetta, capital of the southwestern province of Baluchistan.

    "Flames were rising from more than 20 vehicles. We do not know about any casualties yet because the blaze is still so huge," Arshad said.
    "First the fire started in two oil tankers and the fuel started leaking which spread the fire to other vehicles," Arshad said.
    "Fire brigade and emergency services were called in immediately after the attack."
    Paramilitary soldiers cordoned off the site as firefighters battled the massive blaze, with flames shooting high into the night sky and thick black smoke billowing from the burning trucks.
    The terminal is one of three set up in and around Quetta for the stranded NATO oil tankers and trucks.

    With allies like Pakistan, who needs enemies? And to think we send them billions of dollars in aid every year.

    The USA needs to seriously rethink who its friends are and its foreign aid policy and Pakistan should not be on the list.
