Bird flu detected at poultry farm in southern Bulgaria

SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria has reported an outbreak of bird flu virus on a farm in the southern district of Plovdiv, the national food safety agency said on Friday.

Due to the virus, found on a farm in the village of Manolsko Konare near the Balkan country's second-largest city of Plovdiv, all birds at the farm will be culled, the agency said without disclosing their number.

"A three-km protection zone and a 10-km observation area around the livestock area were set up," the agency said in a statement, adding that a ban on the trade and movement of domestic, wild and other birds and trade in eggs, had been imposed.
