Friday December 09, 2011 08:27:17 AM, IANS

Islamabad: At least 30 NATO oil tankers and containers were torched in a rocket attack at a terminal in Pakistan Thursday night, state-run television network PTV reported. There were no reports of any casualties.

Unidentified people attacked with rockets the private container terminal at Kharot Abad area near Quetta, capital of Balochistan province, Xinhua said. Firing also followed the rocket attack.

More than 35 NATO oil tankers and containers were parked at the terminal when the attack took place, said local media reports.

No one was killed or injured in the attack, the reports said.

Six fire engines were dispatched to the site after the attack was reported.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Thousands of NATO supply convoys are stranded in Pakistani territory following the government's decision to block the supply lines via Pakistan in protest against the NATO air strike which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers Nov 26.
