The attackers fired bullets and rockets at a convoy of 15 oil tankers traveling from Pakistan's main seaport of Karachi to Afghanistan overnight.  Local officials said a driver was killed and eight vehicles were set on fire.  The attack happened around 300 kilometers from Quetta, the capital of the southwestern province of Balochistan, which borders Afghanistan and Iran.  There has been no claim of responsibility. The Taliban has in the past carried out such attacks to disrupt supplies for U.S.-led NATO troops fighting in Afghanistan.  Pakistan and the United States have signed a deal allowing NATO supply convoys to travel into Afghanistan until the end of 2015.  Based on reporting by AP and AFP
