Gunmen fire on tankers bound for NATO

Gunmen in Pakistan opened fire on oil trucks bound for NATO forces in Afghanistan, setting some 20 vehicles on fire and killing three, police said Monday.

The attack came shortly after Pakistan's ambassador to the United States vowed his country would go after terrorists on its soil.

Naeem Iqbal, a police spokesman, said five people were wounded in the attack on tankers parked on a main road outside a housing complex near the capital city of Islamabad. Efforts to put out the blaze are ongoing, he said.

    CNN...you report that Pakistani Taliban are taking credit for this attack. Will you please reveal to US just how you learned that the Taliban did this? Do you have proof that the Taliban made this claim?

      Phil..FYI...I had only read "Pakistani Gunmen" and "North Waziristan as a haven for various factions of Afghan and Pakistani Taliban and al Qaeda militants."
      There's nothing there that CNN says that Pakistani Taliban claiming the attack. Are we reading the same news story?
