One staff member of the World Health Organization (WHO) and one international consultant were injured, when their vehicle was shot at by armed men in Karachi, Pakistan.

WHO said in a statement that the two men were in stable condition.

The men were supporting the currently-ongoing polio National Immunization Days campaign. The agency says at this point, there is no evidence to suggest that this was a deliberate or targeted attack against polio eradication efforts, or WHO.
