Islamic extremists attack aid workers

They demand that the West give them more aid, then attack the aid workers for not being Islamists. Stop sending aid! At least until the Islamists are stopped. Hopefully buried.

IRIN Asia | Asia | Pakistan | PAKISTAN: Islamic extremists attack aid workers | Natural Disasters Conflict Aid Policy | Breaking News: "The United Nations has temporarily suspended its activities - and closed its offices - for two weeks in quake-affected Bagh sub-district in Pakistani-administered Kashmir following a spate of security incidents involving members of the humanitarian community.

The move follows similar measures taken by international NGOs working in the area.

'This is a temporary measure to ensure the safety and security of our staff on the ground and we are working closely with the government and local communities to resolve the matter,' Dr France Donnay, acting UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator for Pakistan, told IRIN in Islamabad, on Wednesday.

The move follows an escalation of security incidents in Bagh, an isolated rural and conservative community in Pakistani-administered Kashmir badly damaged in the 8 October 2005 earthquake.

More than 80,000 people were killed and thousands more injured in the country's north when the 6.7 magnitude quake ripped through Pakistani-administered Kashmir and the country's North West Frontier Province (NWFP), leaving more than 3.5 million people homeless."
