- The World Health Organisation has confirmed that 36 Syrian children have died as a result of receiving tainted measles vaccines under a United Nations-sponsored program.
Children were given the vaccine in question specifically in the rebel-held north of Syria, and so far it does not appear to have effected children elsewhere.
Shortly after rumors began circling that the the vaccine was tainted as a deliberate sabotage, and the UN immediately stopped the vaccination program to limit the number of children affected.
