NATO oil tankers continue to be attacked in Pakistan. 57 more were torched Wednesday 10/6. Hundreds of NATO vehicles, including tankers and containers are still parked in Northwestern Pakistan near the Afghan border.
Earlier in the day, gunmen attacked another convoy torching at least 25 fuel trucks on the outskirts of the southwestern city of Quetta.
Pakistan’s pro-Taliban militants have claimed responsibility for the attack. They say the move is in retaliation for the increasing number of non-UN-authorized US airstrikes in Pakistan.
The attacks coincide with Islamabad shutting off a major crossing along the border with Afghanistan, in reaction to a NATO incursion into its territory.
The main supply route used by US-led forces in Pakistan to transport goods to neighboring Afghanistan has been closed for seven consecutive days now.
