There has been another attack on a NATO convoy in Pakistan, the latest in a series since the closure of the main supply route to Afghanistan last week.

Suspected Pakistani Taliban militants opened fire on oil tankers outside Quetta near the Afghan border, torching many of the vehicles and killing at least one driver.

The Pakistani Taliban says it carried out the ambush - the fourth attack on a NATO supply convoy in six days, the BBC reports.
