Malaysia's health ministry says a 51-year-old teacher infected with swine flu has died, becoming the eighth fatality related to the virus in the country.

A ministry statement says the woman died in a hospital on Sunday after being ill for almost a week. The statement received on Tuesday did not give the cause of death.

Malaysia has reported 1,446 swine flu cases, including the eight deaths, since May.
