Pakistan's state news agency says a roadside bomb has struck an oil tanker carrying fuel for US-led coalition forces in neighboring Afghanistan. No one was hurt. The Associated Press of Pakistan says the truck "burst into flames" after the explosion Tuesday near Peshawar, a city near the Afghan border. The tanker carrying 44,000 liters (11,624 gallons) of fuel was completely destroyed. The report did not say who may have been involved. But authorities have blamed Islamic militants for similar attacks in the past.
