Attackers in Pakistan hit another convoy carrying fuel for NATO troops

Attackers in Pakistan hit another convoy carrying fuel for NATO troops in Afghanistan on Monday, killing one person, authorities said.

It's the fourth attack in as many days on convoys carrying fuel to support the NATO forces.

Gunmen fired on a convoy of oil tankers in the Kalat district of Pakistan's western Balochistan province, said Bashir Ahmed, a police official in Kalat. One person died, police said.

Attackers struck two convoys on Friday and a third on Sunday.

The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for two of those attacks, a central spokesman for the militant group told CNN by telephone Monday.

One of the attacks took place Friday against a convoy of NATO supplies near Shikarpur in the southern Sindh province. The other took place Sunday in the capital of Islamabad, killing three local guards.

    YOU CANT COVER THE CRIMES DID BY TERRORISTS IN YOUR OWN LAND AND IN AFGHANISTAN CAVES. YOU LIKE TO SEE THIS WAR GOING ON AND YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE ATTACKS ON USA. THAT IS YOUR DESIRE WHILE HIDING UNDER 360 DEGREES.

    I am wondering if this is the work of the Taliban or the Paki Transportation Mafia using local thugs with guns to blow up some tankers in order to raise the contract fees paid by Uncle Sam. This is a common buisness practice in that neck of the woods, and given the fact that the tankers run (and now sit) unprotected in that area they are the fattest, softest targets in sight. Easy way to raise the proffit, eh?

        I'm with you,M.Danish.The main reason we went to war with Iraq was the fact that it had 11% of the world's oil but the right-wing news will never tell us that.I say that we owe it to the Iraqi people to let them decide their own destiny but the right-wing thugs in Washington will never stand for that!

    first they said it was NATO killed Pakistan Army .Now it is Taliban killing local guards. what is the reaction for this local guards deaths? Pakistan people are very ungrateful .. Always change minds and no backbone to stand against terrorism, How can anyone say Pakistan Army is the 7th biggest army in the world ..?if they cant wipe out terrorism from their own country?
