At least two dozen oil tankers and trailers carrying supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan were destroyed by fire after a rocket attack in the Pakistani border, local media reports said Monday.

According to officials, unidentified men fired rockets at the containers and NATO oil tankers in Chaman area of Pak-Afghan border Sunday evening, setting vehicles on blaze.

Reports said over 25 containers, oil tankers, trailers and the vehicles mounted on trailers were all destroyed with three people injured.

Soon after the incident, Pakistani Frontier Corps and police put a security cordon around the area.

Afghan officials, in the meanwhile, have stopped entry of all kinds of vehicles from Pakistan.

Hundreds of vehicles have been stuck in the border town over the past two days because of suspension of traffic between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
