Cambodia says recent bird flu cases not caused by humans:


Recent cases of bird flu discovered in two Cambodian villagers, one of them fatal, show no sign of human-to-human transmissi­on, health officials in the Southeast Asian nation say, allaying fears of a public health crisis. An 11-year-old Cambodian girl from a village in the southeaste­rn province of Prey Veng died Feb. 22 at a hospital in the capital, Phnom Penh, shortly after tests confirmed she had Type A H5N1 bird flu. Her father tested positive for the virus the day after her death but showed no strong symptoms and was released Tuesday from a Prey Veng hospital where he had been kept isolated.
