Six people die when colliding with a tanker vehicle of NATO

.- At least six civilians were killed when the vehicle hit the truck carrying a tank against NATO in southwestern Pakistan, said a police source told Efe. The civilians were riding in a van that crashed into the tanker of NATO in the city of Quetta, capital of the southwestern province of Baluchistan, which was heading towards the Afghan border, the source said.

Shaman step, which was moving toward the truck, and the Khyber, further north, are the major land routes to Afghanistan. Vehicles supplied to foreign troops in neighboring Afghanistan tend to be attacked at several points on its route in Pakistan. Tankers are often torched by insurgents, but also various criminal organizations attacking the vehicles with supplies for NATO, where it can be, among other products, electronic equipment, the most lucrative on the black market.
