Three children have died from Avian Flu in Turkey recently, and they are all from the same town in eastern Turkey, Dogubayazit.
1:30 a.m.: A third child from the same family died of bird flu at a hospital within a week in this eastern Turkish city, doctors said. Hulya Kocyigit, 11, died only a day after her 15-year-old sister, Fatma Kocyigit, succumbed to the disease on Thursday. Their brother Mehmet Ali Kocyigit, 14, died on Sunday.
Interestingly, the town is near the Iranian border. Interesting only that if an epidemic were to start in Iran, would they tell us?
