Aid groups January 2 demanded greater protection in Pakistan amid concerns of a new spike in violence after seven charity workers were shot dead and their organisation suspended operations. The six women -- five of them teachers and one a health visitor -- and a male health technician were ambushed by gunmen on motorbikes on January 1 as they were returning from a community centre in northwestern district Swabi.
