2 NATO truck drivers killed in rocket attacks

12 January, 2013

QUETTA: Two drivers were killed and 10 NATO containers were damaged on Friday night when several brazen rockets attacks were carried out on a terminal near Hazara Ganji, on the outskirts of Quetta.

According to police, unidentified armed men fired four rockets targeting NATO containers which were en rout to Kandahar from Karachi and were temporary parked at the terminal.

"Two drivers, identified as Abid and Waheed Shah, received multiple wounds in the attack and died," a police official said, adding that the assailants also opened indiscriminate fire that lasted for about half and hour.

Police and other law enforcement agencies rushed to the site after the incident and cordoned off the area. Fire fighters were also called in to put out the fire. "Some 10 containers were partially damaged after they caught fire," DIG (operations) Hamid Shakeel said.
