Nato truck attacked

November 08, 2013

LANDI KOTAL, Nov 7: Cleaner of a Nato container was injured when the vehicle was fired at by unidentified gunmen in Jamrud on Thursday.

Khasadar officials said that the incident took place on the by-pass road where a container carrying unspecified goods for Nato forces was on its way to Afghanistan via Khyber Pass.

They said unidentified attackers opened fire on the container from the nearby houses. The firing caused injuries to one Wali Mohammad who was identified as cleaner of the vehicle and was later shifted to a hospital in Peshawar.

Security forces cordoned off the area soon after the incident and conducted a search operation in the locality. Nobody was, however, arrested.

The incident also caused suspension of traffic on the road for some time.

The containers which came under attack were later escorted up to Torkham border. —Correspondent
