Indonesia floats idea of man-made swine flu




As swine flu continues to take its toll, claims surface that the deadly four-part flu virus could have been created for "bio-terror attacks." Speaking at a conference to reassure the public over hers government's response to the swine flu threat, Indonesian Heath Minister Siti Fadilah Supari said Tuesday that the controversial virus could have been man-made.

She declined to elaborate on her claim but she had previously accused Western governments of making and spreading viruses in the developing world to boost pharmaceutical companies' profits, AFP reported. "I'm not sure whether the virus was genetically engineered but it's a possibility," Supari said.
