14 killed in attack on polio clinic: Islamic militants feared 'Western trick'
A suicide bomber has blown himself up in front of a polio clinic in Pakistan. Militant Islamists feared that the clinic was used to sterilize Pakistani children.

At least 14 people have died after a suspected suicide bomber has blown himself up outside a polio vaccination clinic in the city of Quetta in Pakistan.

13 of those killed were policemen who guarded the clinic. Guarded health clinics are not unusual in Pakistan, where Islamic militants are doing what they can to slow down vaccine programs. They are against vaccinations, which they believe is a Western trick, in fact, used to sterilize Pakistani children, writes the BBC.

Therefore, there has in recent years been a number of deadly attacks against vaccination clinics. This has led to that Pakistan and Afghanistan are the only two countries where the polio disease remains widespread.

There were, however, according to the BBC, less attacks on polio clinics in Pakistan last year, compared to 2014.
