PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Militants in Pakistan attacked tankers bringing fuel to NATO and US forces in Afghanistan on Friday, killing four people and causing a massive nighttime blaze.

A group of around 15 militants armed with rockets and guns stormed a roadside terminal on the outskirts of the northwestern city of Peshawar. At least 12 tankers were set ablaze in the attack, said police officer Liaquat Ali Khan.

The dead men were drivers or their assistants, he said.
