Vietnam: Two new cases suspected

Radio Australia reports that Vietnam raises fresh concerns about bird flu as new cases suspected.

Bird flu may have infected two more people in Vietnam, where scientists say it has mutated into a more dangerous form which could spread in mammals, and cause outbreaks in poultry. State newspapers report a student was being tested in hospital after eating chicken eggs.

Samples from a 78-year-old woman who died from serious pneumonia in the central province of Quang Binh on Friday, are also being tested.
