Gunmen kill policemen, polio worker

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) – Gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on Pakistani police escorting a team of polio workers on Tuesday during a door-to-door inoculation campaign in a former Pakistani Taleban stronghold, killing two policemen and a polio worker, police said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack in North Waziristan, a district in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The attack came a day after the government launched another nationwide anti-polio campaign amid a spike in attacks.
