An outbreak of swine flu has claimed the lives of nine Palestinians in the West Bank, the office of Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Salam Fayyad said Saturday, according to AFP.

The PA said that 187 cases of the H1N1 influenza strain had been recorded thus far, the majority of which were in the northern West Bank.

The statement added that the PA Health Ministry "has the necessary medicines, testing kits and equipment to deal efficiently with the spread of the virus".
