BAHRAIN. Bahraini health officials reported the Gulf island's first suspected case of Swine flu on Thursday after an American traveling via Bahrain International Airport was discovered with high fever.

The 40-year-old man - who was reportedly traveling from Florida, and transited in Frankfurt, Germany - was discovered as he was passing through the airport's thermal cameras.

According to source the man was first transferred to a private hospital, before being shifted to the quarantine ward at the country's main hospital.

The first two of three results are expected within the next few hours, while one more sample would be sent to the World Health Organization (WHO) offices in Cairo, Egypt for testing. Pending the results, the case could be the first confirmed report of swine flu in the Gulf.
