KARACHI, Aug 24: Two armoured vehicles of Nato forces were damaged when a group of people set a trailer transporting them to Afghanistan on fire at the Maripur truck terminal on Sunday night.
Witnesses said that 30 to 35 men, some of them armed, torched the trailer near the terminal’s Gate No.5 when its driver and cleaner were having dinner at a nearby restaurant. The assailants also fired in the air, the witnesses said.
However, Keamari Town SP Rao Anwar Ahmed told Dawn that no incident of firing had taken place. “One of the Nato vehicles was damaged and the other was intact,” he added.
