JALALABAD, Afghanistan, Dec. 30 (Xinhua) -- At least one person was killed when 11 oil trucks supplying fuel for the NATO-led coalition forces caught fire following a blast in eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar on Sunday evening.

"Initially, an oil tanker caught fire after an explosion by a sticky bomb but later it engulfed 10 more trucks in the incident which took place at about 6 p.m. local time in Behsud district," Mohammad Zahir police chief of the district told Xinhua.

One driver who was wounded in the incident later died of his wounds in a hospital in the incident, he said.

No group claims responsibility for the incident. Taliban insurgent group routinely claims attacking oil trucks.

Taliban has warned the civilians to stay away from official gatherings, military convoys and centers regarded as the legitimate targets by militants besides warning people against supporting government and foreign troops.
