Feb 10, 2007
SOUTH KOREA is killing thousands of chickens after its sixth bird flu outbreak in three months near the capital, Seoul. Chickens began dying on Tuesday at a poultry farm near Ansung, 80 km (50 miles) south of Seoul. It is not yet known whether it is the H5N1 strain of the virus, which is potentially fatal to humans. More than two million birds have been slaughtered in the country since bird flu reappeared there in November 2006. Officials are raising concerns that previous quarantine measures have failed to control the outbreak.
(AXcess News) Washington - Turkey announced Friday an H5N1 avian influenza outbreak at a farm in the southeastern part of the country, as English authorities explored the possibility of a connection between recent outbreaks in Suffolk and Hungary.
