Preliminary testing shows that an Indonesian woman died of bird flu over the weekend on Bali resort island, an official said Monday. If confirmed, it would be the first time the H5N1 bird flu virus had killed in the popular holiday island destination, although the disease has long been endemic in poultry flocks there. It would bring the number of Indonesian fatalities to 82, out of 103 recorded human cases. Officials were also trying to determine if the woman's 5-year-old daughter, who was cremated after dying on Aug. 3, may also have had the virus.
