Pakistan: Polio vaccinator shot dead in Faisalabad, Jundullah claims responsibility

LAHORE: Outlawed militant group Jundullah [‘Soldiers of Allah’] claimed responsibility for killing a polio vaccination team member in Faisalabad on Tuesday.

Ahmed Marwat, who claims to be the spokesman of Jundullah, said polio workers would always be on the group’s hit list throughout Pakistan and that it would continue carrying out attacks on them.

Today’s attack — the latest of many on the teams — occurred in a residential area of Faisalabad in Punjab, where workers were immunising children on the second day of an anti-polio drive…

…Pakistan is one of only three countries where polio remains endemic.

I hear polio has made a comeback in Syria — brought by jihadis from Pakistan.

Has civilization peaked?
