CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - The Canadian province of Alberta reported its first swine flu infections on Tuesday, with two males falling ill with a mild form of the disease after traveling to Mexico, health officials said.

Neither of the patients in the two cases, one in the city of Calgary and another in the province's north, required hospitalization. One has completely recovered and the second is expected to soon be free of symptoms, the officials said.
