WHO flu experts meeting concludes, no decisions

GENEVA, April 25 (Reuters) - An emergency meeting of influenza experts discussed the swine flu outbreaks in Mexico and the United States but did not take any decisions, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Saturday.

WHO spokeswoman, Sari Setiogi, said the group of 15 experts including WHO Director-General Margaret Chan had heard the latest information from the Mexican and U.S. health authorities. The United Nations agency would continue to monitor the situation on Sunday but no meetings were planned.

"They didn’t make any decisions today," Setiogi told Reuters. "A statement will be made available later today." (Editing by Jonathan Lynn)
