Flames rise from the burning NATO supply oil tankers following an attack by gunmen in Dadar town of Bolan district, about 90 kilometres southwest of Quetta, the provincial capital of Baluchistan late on December 11, 2011. Gunmen killed a NATO truck driver and burnt seven tankers carrying oil for Western troops in Afghanistan, the second such attack in southwest Pakistan in less than a week, police said. The convoy was attacked while returning to the port city Karachi from the Afghan border, which Pakistan shut to NATO supplies on November 26 after NATO air strikes killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.
