Militant ambush kills 12 of polio workers escort in Pakistan

(Reuters) - Militants killed 12 members of the security escort for a polio vaccination team in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, detonating a roadside bomb before opening fire on their convoy, according to officials.
The attack lasted an hour and when rescuers approached the scene the gunmen also attacked them, according to Khan Faraz, an official in the Jamrud area of Khyber, a rugged tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Around a dozen wounded were taken to hospital, but others died on the road waiting for help to arrive, he said...

man, these stories just frustrate me so much.

let's at least hear a good word for the people who are, at great personal risk, still going out there and working to eradicate polio.

I believe, & I could be wrong, that the ceasefire is a more recent event than this particular one, by roughly 24 hours.
