Pakistan: Mother and daughter shot dead whilst administering polio vaccinations

Pakistan: Mother and daughter shot dead whilst administering polio vaccinations Unidentified gunmen shot and killed a 38-year-old mother, Sakina Bibi, and her 16-year-old daughter Rizwana, whilst they were administering polio vaccinations to children in the city of Quetta on Thursday. According to police official Naseebullah Khan, the two women had been part of a major immunisation campaign... Еще in the Balochistan province. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, however Islamist militants strongly oppose vaccination as a Western conspiracy. Many involved in polio immunisation campaigns in Pakistan have been killed by Islamic militants in recent years. Local police officer Moazzam Jah Ansari called the attack «an undermining attempt to disturb the polio campaign», and speculated that «different people and powers might be involved in it».
