Islamabad: An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan on Tuesday awarded the death sentence to three Taliban militants for killing four policemen during an attack on oil tankers carrying fuel for NATO troops in neighboring Afghanistan.

The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) attacked the NATO containers in Attock district, some 95 km northwest of the capital city in 2010.

The court also imposed a penalty of 300,000 rupees on each convict.

The lawyer for the convicts said he would challenge the verdict in the high court.

A group of armed Taliban attacked the NATO tankers when their drivers were having dinner at a roadside hotel.

The militants fired at the police as they arrived at the scene.

The attackers had been arrested from the tribal region. Investigators said the TTP men had confessed to their crime.
