Pakistan Suicide Bombing Hits Polio Clinic

In an act of barbarity, a suicide bomber struck a polio vaccination clinic that mostly aided children today. The attack in Northwest Pakistan killed at least 15.

The New York Times reported on the blast.

The suicide bomber detonated his explosives among the police officers, said provincial home minister Sarfraz Bugti. "We're in a war zone," he added.

The bombing happened outside the polio center shortly before vaccination teams were due to be dispatched to local neighborhoods as part of a three-day immunization campaign, said Syed Imtiaz Shah, the local police chief.
