Gunmen in Pakistan have torched a dozen trucks used for supplying fuel for NATO forces in Afghanistan.

The attack took place near the northwestern city of Peshawar.

No casualties were reported.

No one claimed responsibility for the attack, but suspicion fell on Taliban militants, who have in the past targeted supplies trucked through Pakistan for coalition forces in landlocked Afghanistan.
