Three female polio workers gunned down in Afghanistan – The Washington Post (Me: Taliban… same old, same old dictators)

Three Afghan women carrying out polio vaccinations were shot dead Tuesday in two separate attacks in eastern Afghanistan, the latest in a string of targeted killings sowing unease in government-held towns and cities despite ongoing peace talks to end decades of war.

One woman was killed in Jalalabad, Nangahar’s provincial capital, and two others were shot farther to the west, according to spokesmen for the governor and the Ministry of Public Health. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Targeted killings in Afghanistan began last year as peace talks were launched between the Afghan government and the Taliban, and they are now a near-daily occurrence in cities such as the capital, Kabul and Jalalabad.
