The death toll from the outbreak of a lethal strain of E. coli centred in Germany rose to 30 Thursday after the western city of Frankfurt reported a further fatality.

The latest victim was a 57-year-old man who last month travelled with his wife to the northern city of Hamburg, an epicentre of the outbreak, authorities in Frankfurt said.

This brings to 30 the total number of dead, including one woman who died in Sweden after visiting Germany.
