BREAKING: Pakistan Strikes Back, Rockets Reportedly Fired at NATO Tankers

QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) – Pakistani police say assailants have fired rockets at tankers carrying fuel for U.S-led troops in Afghanistan, setting at least 10 vehicles on fire.

The attack Thursday was the first since Pakistan closed the border for trucks carrying Afghan war supplies to protest a Nov. 26 NATO airstrike that killed 24 Pakistani troops on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Police officer Hamid Shakil says the tanker attack took place at a roadside terminal close to the southwestern city of Quetta.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.
