RAWALPINDI: Unidentified persons have set fire to at least seven Nato trucks in Tarnol, Rawalpindi. The trucks were transporting oil and other essentials to Nato troops in Afghanistan.
Suspected militants have attacked Nato trucks in Pakistan before. Most of the previous attacks have taken place in Quetta and other places close to the Afghan border.
This is the first reported attack to have taken place in Rawalpindi, close to the capital Islamabad. The latest attack puts into question the security situation in the nation’s capital.
