Nigeria polio vaccinators shot dead in Kano
2013-02-08
Nine female polio vaccinators have been killed in two shootings at health centres in northern Nigeria, police have told the BBC.

In the first attack in Kano the polio vaccinators were shot dead by gunmen who drove up on a motor tricycle.

Thirty minutes later gunmen targeted a clinic outside Kano city as the vaccinators prepared to start work.

Some Nigerian Muslim leaders have previously opposed polio vaccinations, claiming they could cause infertility.

On Thursday, a controversial Islamic cleric spoke out against the polio vaccination campaign, telling people that new cases of polio were caused by contaminated medicine.

How utterly savage as well as ironic. In the west, fertility is routinely seen an inconvenience. Strange the urge and power of the procreative process.

#1  That wonderful, modern Religion of Peace strikes again. Infect that cleric with polio and let him live out his days in an iron lung.
