Indonesia reports first death from H1N1 flu

Indonesia has confirmed its first death linked to the H1N1 flu virus after a 6-year-old girl suffering from severe pneumonia died in Jakarta, the health ministry said.

The girl was admitted to hospital with fever, coughs and respiratory problems, the ministry said on its website.

The World Health Organisation has confirmed 800 deaths globally from the H1N1 virus, which has spread to 160 countries.

But health experts say that figure does not reflect the true number of people killed by the virus. Flu can kill people in various ways, including by causing pneumonia, heart attack, stroke or multiple organ failure.

Indonesia has confirmed 343 people have been infected with the H1N1 flu strain as of July 24.

Costa Rican president sick with swine flu

Costa Rican President Oscar Arias has been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus, commonly known as the swine flu, the government said in a televised statement on Tuesday.

Arias fell ill on Sunday, complaining of a sore throat and temperature, Presidential Minister Rodrigo Arias said.

A doctor’s visit on Tuesday revealed that the president had the H1N1 virus, cases of which had been reported earlier in the Costa Rican capital of San Jose.

The president’s overall health was good, but following his doctor’s advice, he will rest at his home until Sunday, Rodrigo Arias said. The president is expected to return to work on Monday, the minister said.

As of Friday, there were 718 confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus in Costa Rica, and the virus has been blamed for 27 deaths, according to a report by the country’s ministry of health.

A majority of the confirmed cases — 480 — were in San Jose. Arias, 67, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987 for helping bring an end to Central America’s civil wars.

More recently, he acted as mediator between two feuding sides claiming the leadership of Honduras.

Bombing – ‘Several injured’ in Spanish car bombing

Bombing – ‘Several injured’ in Spanish car bombing

Bombing, A car bomb exploded early Wednesday near a civil guards barracks in Burgos in northern Spain, leaving some 30 people with minor injuries and causing heavy material damage, officials and media reports said.

National radio said the blast occurred around 4:00 am (0200 GMT) and destroyed the facade of the building. It caused light injuries to about 30 people and a makeshift hospital had been set up nearby. The interior ministry was not immediately available for confirmation.

The radio network blamed the Basque separatist organisation ETA for the attack, citing the local prefect who said there had been no warning call, an ETA trademark, which has allowed authorities in the past to evacuate the area targeted.

ETA has frequently targeted the civil guard in its 41-year campaign to carve a Basque homeland out of northern Spain and southwestern France.

The group, considered a terrorist organisation by the European Union and the United States, is blamed for the deaths of 825 people.

The last ETA bombing took place in early July when a bomb exploded in front of the office of the Basque Socialist party.
