CAIRO - A five-year-old Egyptian child died from bird flu on Wednesday, the tenth death from the virus in the country out of 22 identified cases this year, the Health Ministry said.

Ministry spokesman Dr Hossam Abdel Ghaffar said the boy came to a hospital in the southern province of Aswan on Monday with "fever, sore throat and respiratory distress".

He was transferred to another hospital, and later put on a ventilator in a third hospital where he died. His mother said he had had contact with sick birds, the spokesman added
