BENAZIR Bhutto was kileld by her car’s sun roof, say the Pakistanis.  But: “GENEVA (AFP) – The World Health Organisation on Friday ruled out any mutation of the potentially fatal H5N1 strain of the bird flu virus after a case of inter-human transmission of bird flu may have been detected in Pakistan.”

“There is no suggestion that the virus has changed into a form that poses a broader risk,” WHO spokesman John Rainford told AFP. “If that had been the case, we would have witnessed more cases of human transmission.”

Rainford said that the genetic sequencing of the virus involved in the latest case was being continued.

Laboratory tests have already established that the Pakistani man had been infected with H5N1, even though he had not been in contact with contaminated poultry.

Has anyone checked Bhutto?
