    India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Sri Lanka and (surprisingly) Japan. India being by far the most prevalent.

      The cases related to 60 countries: almost half were linked to Pakistan, 11 percent to Bangladesh, eight percent to India, and two percent to Afghanistan. Other countries were Somalia, Turkey and Iraq.
      You and Doc (the diarist) both mentioned India specifically.  Did I miss something in the article? Or are you guys tossing down your education and experience on me?
