Cholera outbreak kills four in Iraq

A top Health Ministry official says that four people have died of cholera and another 100 people have been infected by an outbreak raging through the country.
The daily Hambastegi quotes Deputy Health Minister Mohammad Mahdi Gooya as saying that the cholera outbreak has been reported in the capital Tehran and five other provinces in central, western and southern Iran.
Health Minister Kamran Bagheri Lankarani says two of the dead were Afghan nationals, according to the official IRNA news agency.
Lankarani said Saturday that lack of sanitation and unhealthy water pumped from wells have led to the cholera outbreak.
