KOLKATA  - At least 26 infants have died in the past five days in a state-run hospital in India’s West Bengal state, authorities said on Sunday. The hospital in Malda, about 340 kilometres (211 miles) north of Kolkata, has come under attack for negligence while state health officials claim the babies were underweight and several of them were “terminally ill”. “Two more babies died on Sunday taking the death toll to 26. Most of them were underweight and had been suffering from birth asphyxia,” West Bengal health services director Biswa Ranjan Satpathi told AFP by telephone.
