Swine flu infections in the Asia-Pacific mounted Saturday, a day after a 26-year-old Australian man with the virus died although authorities say it may have been other serious ailments that killed him. The Aboriginal man who died Friday could be the first person in the region to be claimed by swine flu, which has swept rapidly across nations here but without fatal impact. Bangladesh, Laos and Papua New Guinea all confirmed their first cases Friday, while infections continued to rise sharply in Thailand. On Saturday, China confirmed 32 more infections, bringing its tally to 329 cases, and Malaysia confirmed seven more, bringing its total to 42. The World Health Organization declared swine flu a pandemic last week. As of Friday, it said more than 44,000 cases had been reported worldwide, with 180 deaths, mostly in Mexico and the United States.
