Suspected militants in southern Pakistan have destroyed at least 27 tankers carrying fuel for Nato forces in Afghanistan, officials said.
The attack in Sindh province comes a day after three Pakistani soldiers died in a cross-border air strike by Nato.
Pakistan has blocked supply routes for US and Nato troops in Afghanistan following the raid.
No-one has claimed responsibility for Friday morning's attack in the southern town of Shikarpur.

27 Tank trucks. My guess is that you can’t get away with that without complicity of the ISI and Military. They let it happen, to strike back at American incursions into Pakistan in hot pursuit.
Replace the tankers and deduct the costs from any
“foreign aid” that may have been allocated for
Pakistan. Hit them in the ‘wallet’ when they aid
and abet the enemy.
Please say tank TRUCKs.
Aerial tankers is what comes to mind. (zillions of $$$)
tank trucks (thousands of $$$) easly replaclable
Suspected militants? The media is a hoot.
Yes, the ISI must be complicit - here and many other events as well.
“No-one has claimed responsibility for Friday morning’s attack in the southern town of Shikarpur.”
BP contracted Keebler elves?
Unless the supply line is restored and secured (or an alternative established which isn't likely) it means the war in Afghanistan is over.
What will 0bambi do? What will he do?
Word is that Obama is going to invade Pakistan before the election.
I haven't seen the progressive yet who didn't shout...retreat! with his first 3 breaths.
They're probably just "asian yoots."
“Word is that Obama is going to invade Pakistan before the election.
You must be joking. There is not a snowball’s chance in hell, that Obama will attack anything other than America’s way of life.
I suppose no one bothers to actually guard these trucks?
Since they are so easily replaceable. Wouldn’t it be nice if another country offered to pay for them?
