Baku braces for avian flu

According to BakuTODAY.net, migrating birds will reach the Caspian Sea port this fall. You can read the story here. And here's a key quote:

According to the research, birds that usually migrate from western Siberia to Africa and Europe fly over the Caspian and Black Seas and stay in these territories for several weeks, which may cause spreading of a H5N1 virus there. The virus may also affect Iran, Iraq, Georgia and the Ukraine, as birds from the north often choose these countries to spend the winter, experts say.

I hope to have some news from Iraq later today or tomorrow.
