Cuba and Mexico throw mud over swine flu

Former Cuban president Fidel Castro accused Mexico of covering up its swine flu outbreak so it wouldn't interfere with Barack Obama's recent visit.
Mexican Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova denied the claim, the BBC reported.
State-run television in Cuba said late Monday that a Mexican student living in Cuba had the flu virus. It was Cuba's first confirmed case of swine flu.
The student evidently contracted the flu in Mexico while on vacation there then brought it back to Cuba in late April.
