Pakistani authorities have conducted their first-ever mass arrest of parents for refusing to allow their children to be vaccinated against polio.

The local government says they will only be freed once they have pledged in writing to vaccinate their children.
The Taliban prohibit vaccinations and have attacked health workers.
