APTOPIX Pakistan Polio

A Pakistani child is vaccinated against polio by a health worker in Islamabad, Pakistan, Monday, Nov. 25, 2013. On Saturday, militants kidnapped four school teachers who were working on a polio vaccination drive in Khyber's Sipah village, said local government official Khurshid Khan. Negotiations are underway for their release, he said. Militants have killed over a dozen polio workers and police protecting them over the last year and they claim the health workers are spies and the vaccination is meant to make Muslim children sterile.
