Bird flu kills Cambodian toddler
(03-17 20:08)

A two-year-old Cambodian girl has died from bird flu, becoming the country's fourth confirmed fatality – all children – from the deadly virus this year, health authorities said today.
The girl from the southern province of Kampot died on Friday a day after she was admitted to hospital, the health ministry said in a joint statement with the World Health Organisation.
Tests confirmed she was infected with the H5N1 virus, it said, adding the girl had direct contact with dead chickens in a village where most of the poultry had perished over the last few weeks.—AFP
