    It appears the 2 children are the cases mentioned in this WHO Global Alert and Response (GAR) report:

    Avian influenza – situation in Indonesia - update 7

    26 OCTOBER 2011 - The Ministry of Health of Indonesia has announced two new confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza A(H5N1) virus.

    The first case is a 5-year old female from Bangli district, Bali Province. She developed symptoms on 27 September, and was first admitted to a local general hospital on 5 October. She died on 9 October.

    The second case is a 10-year old male, the brother of the first case. He developed symptoms on 30 September, and was first admitted to the hospital on the same day as his sister. He died on 10 October.

    An epidemiological investigation conducted by the Ministry of Health and local health officers indicated that the children lived in an area with poultry, and household and neighborhood poultry had died prior to the children’s illnesses.

    Laboratory tests have confirmed infection with avian influenza A(H5N1) virus.

    Of the 181 cases confirmed to date in Indonesia, 149 have been fatal.

      It is possible that this person is the mother of the 2 children that died. But we do not have any confirmation of this fact. There is no report from the Indonesian Ministry of Health nor the WHO about this case.

      The mother of the 2 children died on October 17 and was undergoing treatment for H5N1:
