PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) -- Police say a bomb attack in Pakistan
has destroyed 16 tankers carrying fuel for U.S.-led forces in
Afghanistan.

Police officer Shafi Ullah Khan says the attack took place
Saturday at a terminal close to the city of Peshawar in
northwestern Pakistan.

Many of the non-lethal supplies for the war in Afghanistan are
trucked overland through Pakistan after being unloaded at the port
city of Karachi.

Islamist militants frequently attack the trucks, though the vast
majority of supplies makes it through unscathed.

Khan says fire crews were at the scene of the attack.
