Cambodian girl dies from bird flu

A 13-year-old Cambodian girl has died from bird flu, bringing the country's death toll from the H5N1 virus to seven, the Health Ministry and the World Health Organization said in a joint statement Friday.

The girl, from Kampong Cham province that borders Vietnam, died Thursday at a hospital in the capital, Phnom Penh, the statement said.

She fell ill Monday with fever and diarrhea and was admitted to a local hospital the next day before being transferred to the capital, where her condition worsened with a cough and shortness of breath.

Testing at the Pasteur Institute of Cambodia in Phnom Penh confirmed she had tested positive for the H5N1 virus, the statement said.
