Giant panda cub died of liver necrosis, Washington zoo says

Oct 11 (Reuters) - The panda cub that died at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., last month succumbed to liver necrosis caused by inadequately formed lungs, zoo officials said on Thursday.

The cub was born on Sept. 16, and died six days later.
