QUETTA: A polio team administering vaccination to children in Pashtoonabad on Sunday, was attacked by militants, injuring four people including a minor girl.

Police said militants hurled a hand-held bomb at the polio team, which left a five-year-old girl and a lady health worker injured, besides two others.

The girl was quickly shifted to civil hospital Quetta for medical treatment.

The blast also damaged a portion of a mud-walled house in the area.

A polio campaign is under-way in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan since the last four days in full swing.
