Palestinians have confirmed the first death from the H1N1 flu in West Bank, reports Reuters. A 34-year-old man, who recently returned from a pilgrimage to Mecca, has died in hospital in Ramallah, said Asad Ramlawi, a senior Palestinian Health Ministry official.

Palestinians reported the first case of the virus in June, and according to Ramlawi, there are around 80 confirmed H1N1 cases in the Palestinian territories.
