Lebanon's health minister has confirmed the country's first three cases of swine flu, found in passengers arriving at the airport. Mohammed Jawad Khalife told reporters Saturday that a Lebanese man, a Canadian woman and her infant son were diagnosed with the virus a week ago and are now recovering. The minister insisted that the virus does not exist locally in Lebanon. Authorities have taken a series of measures recently to combat the flu, including screening suspect passengers, banning imports of pig livestock and products.
