Pakistan Arresting Parents

Pakistan has arrested hundreds of parents for refusing polio vaccinations. 306 out of last year’s 359 cases occurred in the Middle Eastern country. Uncooperative parents are being influenced by clerics who claim vaccines weaken Islam. "So far, we have arrested 471 parents and efforts are under way to capture others," reported a Peshawar police officer.
