Oekraïne in ban van Mexicaanse griep

A priest waves incense while celebrating a mass at the Kiev-Pecherskaya Lavra monastery in Kiev, a treasure of the Slavic culture and sacred place for the Orthodox church, during a special service dedicated to people suffering from the A(H1N1) virus on November 3, 2009. Ukraine's Orthodox Church launched the prayers "to stop the propagation of the illness". Ukraine raised its death toll from flu and respiratory problems on Monday, while Kiev's mayor suggested a Champions League match should be played without spectators amid a swine flu scare.
