Western plot uncovered

One area of Nigeria is refusing to take part in a UN sponsored polio "immunisation campaign" because they believe that it is a plot to "render Muslim women infertile."

A national polio immunisation campaign is due to resume in Nigeria, but one northern state is refusing to join in.

Kano opted out of a drive last year, when some Islamic leaders said it was part of a western plot to render Muslim women infertile.

Last week the government announced that the oral vaccine, promoted by the United Nations, was safe to use.
