Quetta: 2 people killed in NATO container attack
QUETTA: Gunmen killed two drivers of a Nato container carrying military hardware in a suburb of Quetta on Monday. The vehicle was en route to Afghanistan to deliver the hardware to Nato forces. The six assailants who were on a motorbike opened indiscriminate fire on the container, said a station officer at the new Saryab police station. They then set it on fire and fled.
Police and other law enforcement agencies rushed to the spot and cordoned off the area. The bodies of the drivers who had bullet wounds as well as burn injuries were taken to a nearby hospital.
Attacks on Nato suppliers in and around Quetta have increased in recent days, during which six Nato container and oil tankers have been torched. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
