al-Qaeda Brings Polio to Syria

Its so nice to see al-Qaeda and the Taliban spreading their advanced Islamic culture to remote backwaters.....

At least 22 people - most of them babies and toddlers - are now believed to have contracted polio in Syria, the World Health Organization has reported.

If confirmed, it would be the first outbreak of the disease there in 14 years. Syria's Health Ministry began an immunisation drive on Thursday.

Before Syria's civil war began in 2011, some 95% of children were vaccinated against the disease.

Now, Unicef estimates 500,000 children have not been immunised.

WHO said the suspected outbreak centres on the eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

What? Why these kids would feel polio was a blessing from Allah.
