This is SAD!!!

U.N. suspends aid work in Pakistani quake area ISLAMABAD, May 9 (Reuters) - The United Nations has suspended aid operations in Bagh district of Azad Kashmir for security reasons after a house where two U.N. staff were living was burnt down on Monday, a U.N. official said Wednesday. Reports said some people objected to the presence of women aid workers and the hiring of women by aid groups. Others have been angered because they failed to get jobs or contracts, aid workers said ."We don't know who did it but there have been a number of disgruntled elements in the community," a spokeswoman said. Six U.N. agencies and their 83 staff have been withdrawn from the district for an initial two weeks, she said.(Posted @ 20:05 PST)
