Four people have been killed in north-west Pakistan after militants set fire to 12 tankers carrying fuel for Nato troops in Afghanistan.

About 15 gunmen fired bullets and rockets at the vehicles while they were parked at a roadside terminal at Wadh, near the city of Peshawar, police said.

The victims are believed to have been tanker drivers or their assistants.

Militants and criminals frequently attack trucks carrying supplies for troops operating in Afghanistan.

No group has yet said it was behind the attack.
