PESHAWAR: A Nato oil tanker was destroyed completely after a bomb exploded in the Khyber tribal region. However, no casualties had been reported.

According to security authorities, the oil tanker was heading towards Torkham from Peshawar via the Pak-Afghan border highway on Monday morning.

The explosion took place at the Ali mosque area of Jamrud district in the tribal region.

The Pak-Afghan border highway was subsequently blocked after a massive traffic pile-up, which resulted in the suspension of supply.

Security forces started a search operation in the area. — DawnNews
