TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Gunmen have killed two police officers assigned to protect a team of polio workers in northwest Pakistan, officials said.
The two officers were attacked on Friday as they headed to the town of Swabi, 100km northeast of Peshawar, on a motorcycle to protect the polio workers, AP reported.
No group claimed responsibility, but more than a dozen polio workers and police protecting them have been killed by militants over the past year.
