FC soldier martyred in an attack in Mohmand Agency

Two polio workers were killed in an attack in a tribal area of Pakistan on Saturday, according to a local official.

Pakistan along with Afghanistan, the last two polio-endemic countries in the world, is facing militants, who first forcibly stopped vaccination in Swat in 2007 and then in North and South Waziristan agencies in 2012 and thus, leaving at least 160 children crippled. "Because of communication difficulties in the area, authorities did not learn of the attack until Sunday morning".

Jamaatul Ahrar, a faction of the Pakistani Taliban, claimed the attack. However, whereabouts of two others, including a driver from the team and another worker, had not been ascertained till this report was filed.

Subsequently, a search operation was conducted in the area following which three of the five kidnapped officials were released.




According to the political administration of the agency, unidentified persons opened fire at a polio team, killing two of the workers on the spot and kidnapping five others.

In 2011, US intelligence officials used a fake vaccination program was used as part of the search for Osama Bin Laden.

Polio workers in Pakistan are under attack from terrorists as they believe that the foreign powers are pursuing their agenda inside Pakistan in the garb of vaccination campaigns.

Attacks on polio workers reduced significantly during recent times due to effective awareness campaigns by the government and non-governmental organisations, but still the polio workers carry out campaigns in Pakistan under security cover over fear of attacks. Recently, the attacks slowed because of ongoing military procedure.
