Just came up on BBC NEWS 24 as breaking news, so details are not yet available, but will update as soon as I hear any more news on this matter.

It has been reported that Pakistan had fired 5 rockets at US tankers transporting fuel to Afghanistan. No casualties have been reported, but this is an attack none the less.

At the moment that is all the info that we have, will be back with more as soon as I can.

I've just checked the channel and can't see anything relating to this story. Is it possible for you to get a screenshot at all?

I'll keep an eye out myself and if I see something I'll post.

Im watching it on the TV while trying to get some work done so screenshots are unavailable. I have just found this though through a google search; Google


QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani police say assailants have fired rockets at tankers carrying fuel for U.S-led troops in Afghanistan, setting at least 10 vehicles on fire. The attack Thursday was the first since Pakistan closed the border for trucks carrying Afghan war supplies to protest a Nov. 26 NATO airstrike that killed 24 Pakistani troops on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. Police officer Hamid Shakil says the tanker attack took place at a roadside terminal close to the southwestern city of Quetta. There were no immediate reports of casualties. THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Still not seeing anything on BBC news though. Odd.
