Pakistan floods: Pakistani Taliban threats don't deter foreign aid workers
Pakistan flood foreign aid groups appear to be unfazed by Taliban threats that their presence is 'unacceptable.' Foreign aid workers note that they are always working in a 'high security context.'
“It’s not affecting our activities – we’re continuing our operations normally and in fact we're increasing our response to the flood disaster,” says James Nichols, a spokesman for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), which is providing medical care, clean water, and hygiene kits throughout Pakistan.
“When we say something is unacceptable to us, one can draw his own conclusion,” he added.
