NATO logistics depot hit in Pakistan

Some 160 trucks and other vehicles at a logistics depot in Pakistan were destroyed in an attack by "militants".
Militants blasted their way into two transport terminals in Pakistan on Sunday and torched more than 160 vehicles destined for U.S.-led troops in Afghanistan, in the biggest assault yet on a vital military supply line, officials said.

The attackers fled after a brief exchange of fire with police, who arrived about 40 minutes later, Khan said.

The nine other guards who were on duty but stood helplessly aside put the number of assailants at 300, Khan said, though police official Kashif Alam said there were only 30.
Why do I get the feeling that Pakistan's being less than helpful?
