 Swine Flu Kills One in Western Sahara: Morrocan Ministry
The Moroccan health ministry has said that a fisherman has died of swine flu in the Western Sahara region, where 11 others have been tested H1N1 positive.

The victim, a 40-year-old, had been suffering from a "chronic disease" but the other 11 fishermen are not in serious condition, the ministry said in a statement.

The World Health Organisation declared the swine flu pandemic over in August 2010, more than a year after the H1N1 virus that emerged from Mexico sparked panic and killed thousands of people around the world.
