ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Five female anti-polio workers in Pakistan were slain Tuesday by gunmen on motorcycles, police said, on the second day of a three-day national immunization campaign.

Four of the women were killed in Karachi, the nation's largest city, and the fifth in Peshawar.

Sagheer Ahmed, the health minister for Sindh province, whose capital is Karachi, ordered a halt to the anti-polio drive in the port city after the shootings. Health officials said vaccinations were also halted until further notice in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, where Peshawar is located.

Senior Karachi police officer Shahid Hayat told reporters that another polio worker was shot dead in Karachi on Monday, although the circumstances of that male worker's death and its link to the vaccination program only became clear Tuesday. Hayat blamed the Karachi killings on "militants who issued a fatwa against polio vaccination in the past."

Yet there's no outcry to disarm Pakistan of nuclear weapons, I don't get it. The country is just as dangerous as iran, even harbors terrorist groups. However they let us do what we want so they get our tax payer money.
