Afghanistan: Polio workers gunned down on the job | DW News



Unidentified gunmen shot dead six polio workers in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday during a polio vaccination drive. Police in the province of Nangarhar blamed the Taliban for the attacks. The group has denied responsibility.

The latest killings come just two months after three female polio workers were killed in the provincial capital Jalalabad, also during a polio vaccination drive. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for that killing.

Afghanistan is one of only two countries in the world which has yet to eradicate polio. Its neighbor Pakistan is the other.

  1. Vaccinations strategy by the UNICEF is not enough good.We looking here in Pakistan aften unlocal workers are being hired to carry out this job so such kind of workers may face such kind of unprecedented despite several times best tries we were not engaged in such of difficult job.

  2. I’d just withdraw the help. If you’re feeding your dog and it purposely bites your hand multiple times then you stop feeding the dog and let it starve, maybe then the dog will learn.

  3. USA spent trillion dollars to save Afghanistan. Let that sink in. 20 years later and the Taliban is about to regain control and you want to tango with China? Even if USA succeeds at dealing with China, what will be left of the USA empire?

  4. The question should be why people of the free world don't even trust western doctors and charity organizations these days? Is it because of 300 years of lies, deceptions and genocide? They have lied and cheated so much that even if they have good intention no one will belive them unfortunately
