Gunmen in Pakistan shot and killed two women working on a polio eradication campaign Thursday, the latest in a string of attacks on efforts to protect children from the crippling and sometimes deadly disease.The women were taking part in an immunization campaign in five districts of Baluchistan province, Khan said.In 2015, a suicide bomber killed 15 people outside a vaccination center in Quetta in an attack claimed by the Pakistani Taliban and another militant group, Jundullah.Suspicion of immunization drives was compounded by the hunt for al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, architect of the 2001 attacks on the United States.In another attack on Thursday, unidentified gunmen killed two policemen on patrol in Quetta, police said.
