Pakistan: Muslims kill 7 policeman guarding polio vacination team

Gunmen on motorcycles shot and killed seven police officers protecting polio vaccine workers Wednesday in the port city of Karachi, police said, the latest attacks in a nation where many fear aid groups harbor ulterior motives.

No health workers were harmed in either of the two attacks in Karachi, the capital of southern Sindh province, local police official Mohammad Ijaz said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility. The Taliban and other armed extremists have claimed the West is using vaccination programs as a cover for sterilizing or infecting children.

    It would be a good idea to use it as a cover to sterilize or infect children but we probably aren’t. Screw em, let them all die of polio. They might be cute children but they will grow up to be evil monsters.

    • Islam is such a horrid death cult. No nation knows peace where it takes hold.

    There must be a measurable point where it can be detected that melanin causes insanity.

      No, that tribute goes to Islam.

  • Maggat

    Good heavens, quit worrying about polio workers in islamic countries being murdered. Let polio flourish. Jihadists with part of an arm or leg make poor jihadists. Let them contribute to their own demise.

      Polio is an highly infectious disease , yet it is on the verge of being eradicated .Backward countries like Pakistan could start another epidemic of this horrible children disease . Where do Pakistanis immigrate to in very large numbers, Canada .

    What a bunch of irretrievably stupid fuckwits. And you know, this is far from the first time these health teams have been targeted.

    Pass it on: Vaccines are made from pig blood.

    Seven police guarding the teams whacked and no attackers even scratched?
    That seems sort of strange.
