Pakistan struggling with polio campaign

Recent attacks on polio vaccination teams has undermined the country's efforts to rid itself of the disease.

    Almost 100 new polio cases have been registered in Pakistan since last year and officials are worried that number could increase if more people are not vaccinated.

    But the work of Pakistan's polio vaccinations teams has been hampered because they face targeted attacks.
