ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Assailants in Pakistan launched two separate attacks today on vehicles carrying fuel for NATO and American forces in Afghanistan, highlighting the vulnerability of the United States-led mission a day after Pakistan closed a major border crossing. A truck driver and his assistant were burned alive in the second attack on a single tanker in the parking lot of a restaurant in southeastern Baluchistan province, said police officer Mohammad Azam. He said “anti-state elements” were behind the attack. Earlier today, suspected militants torched 27 tankers. (AP)
