Avian flu kills 7,000 birds in Japan:

Recent outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza in Japan have killed more than 7,000 birds, reports the national agriculture ministry, and more than 162,000 have been culled. Three incidents occurred in the province of Miyazaki and one in the province of Okajama. Up to 169,500 birds were at risk of contracting the virus. The source of the infection is unknown. Authorities are controlling movement inside the country, screening, disinfecting premises, quarantining birds, stamping out and controlling wildlife reservoirs. However, no animals have been treated so far. These are the first outbreaks since March 2004.
