Man dies of swine flu in Croatia despite vaccine
Beus said the man, who died this week, was obese and had diabetes and several other illnesses, which might have prevented the vaccine from working. Doctors were studying the case.
More than 20 people died last year in Croatia during the global swine flu outbreak. About 1,000 are believed to be infected now.
In Montenegro, meanwhile, health authorities said a 64-year-old woman died of swine flu in the Balkan country while seven others were infected.
