Militants ambushed a seven-member medical team vaccinating against polio in Safi tehsil of Mohmand Agency on the border with Afghanistan, killing two workers and abducting three others.

The security forces launched a search operation in the area after the incident. However, whereabouts of two others, including a driver from the team and another worker, had not been ascertained till this report was filed.

An official of the local administration said that the remaining three polio workers identified as Sher Muhammad, Aftab Ahmad and Muhammad Sadiq were recovered.

Officials claimed that the post-monitoring team was in the field without informing the political administration and the security forces despite Political Agent Mohmand Agency's strict orders to follow the standard operating procedure. The militants intensified their propaganda and attacks on polio workers after one such fake campaign was used by the USA to grab al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. He says security forces are still searching for the attackers.
