QUETTA: The first day of a fresh polio vaccination campaign in Balochistan saw a Levies man killed as armed men attacked a polio team in the Pishin district on Monday, officials said.
A Levies official who requested anonymity told Dawn that armed men opened fire at a polio team in Pishin's Karbala area and killed a Levies man.
"The Levies man was guarding the polio workers when they came under attack by militants," he said, adding that the polio workers survived the attack.
The assailants made a quick escape as they drove away on a motorcycle soon after the attack.
Police and Levies personnel reached the site of the incident and cordoned off the area.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
The Health Department of Balochistan in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and UNICEF launched an anti-polio campaign in Quetta, Killa Abdullah and Pishin last week.
A health department official told Dawn that the campaign aims to target over 700,000 children.
