MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexico's federal health secretary says the number of suspected swine flu cases in Mexico has risen to 1,614, including 103 deaths.

Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova says authorities are still trying to confirm how many were caused by the deadly new virus strain, which has shown up in as many as seven other countries and has caused the U.S. to declare a health emergency.

Mexican health officials reported 86 deaths earlier Sunday and nearly 1,400 sickened.

Cordova updated the numbers while speaking to Televisa Mexican national television network on Sunday night.
