61 HIV Positive in south Kazakhstan
The republic's health officials reported that the number of HIV infected children in South Kazakhstan Region has risen to 61.

The Kazakh health minister and a regional governor were nailed and thrown out of their job, following the detection of 61 cases out of which 4 have already succumbed to the disease.

The Kazakh Prosecutor General's office had earlier reported that only half of the 9800 children were examined for HIV. A criminal case has been charged since July 2006.

Medics have not been able to trace the 17 donors allegedly involved in the blood transfusion racket.
