More NATO Fuel Tankers Attacked in Pakistan

Tankers preparing to carry fuel to NATO positions in Afghanistan were attacked, the second attack in less than a week, with another group of tankers reportedly being destroyed.

The tankers were being prepared to transport fuel and were still in the depot when attacked.

Last Friday a tanker convoy was attacked, destroying at least 27 tankers, and possibly as high as 35.

Anger in Pakistan has grown in response to NATO helicopters entering Pakistan air space and killing three Pakistani soldiers while pursuing the Taliban.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for today's assault on the tankers, and said they won't stop until the entire supply line is halted.
