Two suspected bird flu patients have died recently at the Adam Malik Hospital in the Indonesian town of Medan, bringing the number of suspected bird flu deaths to six in the hospital, reports said Monday.

Raphael, 8, died at midnight on Saturday, while Brenita Karo- karo, 18 months, died on Sunday evening, hospital spokesman Dr. Alwinsyah Abidin was quoted by the Ntaional Antara news agency as saying.

The two children suffered from high fever when they were brought to the hospital.
