Polio vaccination center attacked

13 Jan, 2016

14 people die and 20 are wounded as terrorists attack a polio vaccination center in Pakistan. Two separate terrorist groups, both with Taliban links and one swearing allegiance to ISIL, have claimed responsibility for the attack. The attack is not an isolated occurrence. Many of the dead were security officers sent to guard the center. According to a wounded security officer:

Such attacks aiming to stop anti-polio campaigns have happened in the past as well, which have resulted in the deaths of many innocent people. We are trying our best to stop it.
