PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Attacks on polio teams in northwest Pakistan on Friday killed a polio worker and two policemen assigned to protect one of the teams, police and a government official said.
In both attacks, gunmen fled the scene after the killings.
No group claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Pakistani militants have killed more than a dozen polio workers and police protecting them over the past year. They accuse health workers of acting as spies for Washington and claim the polio vaccine is intended to make Muslim children sterile. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
