Photo Courtesy - USGS.gov(QUETTA, Pakistan) -- Two oil tankers delivering supplies to NATO troops in Afghanistan were attacked and set on fire Sunday in southwestern Pakistan.

Officials in Pakistan say unknown gunmen on motorcycles approached and burned the trucks, which were traveling near the area of Mangocher, about 250 miles east of Quetta.

The attackers instructed drivers and passengers to abandon the tankers before they were torched. Such NATO vehicles are often targets for insurgents looking to disrupt supply lines to coalition forces in Afghanistan.
